With a history dating back almost two centuries, Cheltenham has become synonymous with world class National Hunt horse racing, and from Tuesday 13 to Friday 16 March 2018, hundreds of thousands of people will descend on the Gloucestershire spa town for the world-famous spectacle of The Festival 2018.
Encompassing Champion Day, Ladies Day, St Patrick’s Thursday and the internationally-renowned 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 2018 is not to be missed.
