Although there is no official dress code for The Festival, smart is preferable and is often adopted. As we race largely during the winter months, the weather can be unpredictable, so we would advise you to dress accordingly.
Many ladies wear hats, but we recommend you have the weather as well as fashion in mind. Gentlemen usually wear a suit or similar, 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.
