The Festival is a four day, world class Jump racing event welcoming over 260,000 racegoers. It's a date in any sports fans' diary. 


Never been to Cheltenham before? Don't worry! Let us guide you through and help you decide which enclosure is best for you! Find out more about our other race meetings including The November Meeting and New Year's Day and let us introduce you to our very own Syndicate


If you are considering upgrading your admission ticket to a more premier enclosure, we advise doing it in advance as if the raceday sells out, the option to upgrade on the day won't be available.

We don't have a specific dress code, and as The Festival is in March, we advise you dress for the weather.

Across the four day Festival, we hold 28 races. Each day of The Festival hosts seven races, including one feature race. 


Day Four is The Cheltenham Gold Cup Day.

We don't offer a multi-day ticket, however, becoming a Full Annual Member gives you entry to each day of The Cheltenham Festival in the Club enclosure, including dedicated Annual Members areas. 


Annual Membership comes with many benefits including admission to our other 11 racedays and over 50 reciprocal fixtures.


Annual Membership is now sold out for 2021/22 season.
