Countryside Day at The November Meeting 2023

Kicking off The November Meeting in style with a celebration of all things rural, Countryside Day features six races — including The Mucking Brilliant Paddy Power Handicap Chase — as well as a gun dog display, dressage action, and the RoR Parade where retired racing stars return to the Home of Jump Racing.

There's also a live DJ set from Radio 1 duo Rickie and Melvin in The Centaur after the last race.

November Saturday at The November Meeting 2023

The showstopper of the weekend, November Saturday provides an excitable and fun atmosphere, with seven thrilling races including the hotly anticipated Paddy Power Gold Cup.

While the owners, trainers and jockeys battle it out on the track, racegoers can browse for everything from couture bags to artwork in the Shopping Village and enjoy live music from The Chip Shop Boys in The Centaur, too. 

November Sunday at The November Meeting 2023

The only Sunday race day of the season, Cheltenham Racecourse invites families to come along for a day of fun, with entertainment including the suitcase-circus show from Tweedy the Clown; appearances from Hey Duggee; sports challenges from Gloucester Rugby and Gloucestershire Cricket Club; and, of course, the infamous inflatable derby hoppers!

On the track, the highlight of the day is The Unibet Greatwood Hurdle Race, so there's something to keep everyone happy. Plus, under 18s go free with a paying adult.
