Cheltenham Racecourse

Friday 13 December 2019

Looking for that alternative christmas party? 

Join us at Cheltenham Racecourse to celebrate the festive season with your family, friends and colleagues




From festive family get-togethers to Christmas parties, this Cheltenham favourite is the place to enjoy high-calibre racing this holiday season. 


Why choose Friday of The International as a day out for your colleagues, team, family or friends?

  • Excellent racing
  • World-class hospitality across a range of restaurants  
  • A variety of food and drink options to whet your Christmas appetite 


On Friday at The International in 2018, we celebrated the official Christmas Jumper Day and encouraged racegoers to don their festive jumper. Racegoers had the chance to win on the spot prizes for the most fun and festive jumper. Prizes included a pair of tickets to any of the forthcoming race meetings including The Festival™, presented by Magners


The finale of the Crystal Cup series takes place on Friday of The International and was won by the Jamie Snowdon-trained Fact Of The Matter having ran impressively over the cross country fences at The November Meeting.
