The Festival™ supporting WellChild

Next fixture: The Festival™ Supporting wellchild 2021


The next meeting at Cheltenham Racecourse will be the highlight of the Jump Racing season: the four days of The Festival™ supporting Wellchild from Tuesday 16th to Friday 19th March 2021.


Based on current Government restrictions, professional sport is able to continue under stringent health and safety protocols, without spectators present. In horseracing’s case this is vital to support the livelihoods of the many thousands of people who rely on the industry and for the welfare of the thousands of Thoroughbred racehorses who live and train in Britain.


This means that under current restrictions, The Festival™ supporting WellChild will take place as a televised event, but sadly without spectators at the course. We continue to monitor Government guidance and should this change in advance of The Festival™ supporting Wellchild we will act accordingly.


16 - 19 March 2021

Be a part of history being made at the pinnacle Jump racing event of the year. The Cheltenham Festival is an event with an atmosphere that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.


  • Day One: with pent up anticipation let go in one mighty roar
  • Day Two: where tweed becomes fashionably becoming
  • Day Three: part of England, forever Ireland
  • Day Four: with Jump racing at its heart, witness the creation of a legend.
