Editor's Choice

The Festival and Gold Cup 2017 will include a feast of gripping horse racing, Guinness drinking and hat wearing, not to mention more than £600 million-worth of wagers, at the jewel in jump racing's crown, Cheltenham Racecourse.

With a history dating back almost two centuries, Cheltenham has become synonymous with world class National Hunt horse racing, and from Tuesday 14 to Friday 17 March 2017, hundreds of thousands of people will descend on the Gloucestershire spa town for the world-famous spectacle of The Festival 2017, and while tickets for Gold Cup Day have sold out, tickets are still available for the other three days.

Encompassing the Champion Day, Ladies Day, St Patrick’s Thursday and the internationally-renowned Cheltenham Gold Cup Day, the four-day event will see more than 25 races take place, with almost £600 million being bet on some of the world’s finest race horses.

Some of the best and bravest horses and jockeys, nervous and excited trainers and owners, and thousands of spectators will once again be uniting, determined to have the time of their lives.

Organisers said: ‘The Festival is one of those rare events that engages everyone who comes into contact with it, never failing to produce award-winning drama, enjoyment, camaraderie and sporting excellence in a cocktail for which no hangover cure is required. It truly is a life affirming four days.’

What’s more, with plenty of live music, entertainment, dining, shopping and trade stands to enjoy, in addition to the races, whether you’re a seasoned racing fan or a first-timer – The Festival and Cheltenham Gold Cup 2017 is not to be missed.
