Although there isn't an official dress code for The Festival, smart is preferable and is often adopted. The weather in March can be unpredictable, so we would advise you to check the forecast and dress accordingly.
From feathers to tweed, dresses to hats, anything goes at The Festival. Gentlemen usually wear a suit or similar, and ladies often opt for hats, in all enclosures and our restaurants and hospitality facilities.
We are pleased to welcome top model Frankie Herbert, as our 2020 fashion ambassador for The Cheltenham Festival 2020. Find out more here.
Two-thirds of our car parks are on grass, including most public car parks, so please do bear this in mind and wear suitable footwear for the conditions.
Fancy dress is permitted as long as the outfit is not offensive and we reserve the right to decline entry should the need arise. Please note, fancy dress is not permitted in the Club enclosure.
