Enjoy a more relaxed race day at Cheltenham Racecourse, with The April Meeting taking place on Wednesday 19 and Thursday 20 April 2023.

Jump racing fans who prefer a more relaxed pace are sure to enjoy The April Meeting, promising two days of highly competitive action on Wednesday 19 and Thursday 20 April 2023.

The April Meeting attracts smaller crowds than its Gold Cup counterpart, the Cheltenham Festival, but still provides plenty of thrilling races and a wonderful opportunity to get even closer to the action.

As well as the Grade 2 Handicap Chase on the opening day and some top-class hurdle races, spectators can enjoy one of the final chances to see their racing favourites before the end of the jump racing season.

Better still, children aged 17 and under go free, so it's an ideal opportunity to introduce little ones to the sport while the racecourse is quieter.
