The Festival™ presented by Magners and Gold Cup Day promises a feast of gripping horse racing, Guinness drinking and hat wearing, not to mention more than £4.5 million of prize money up for grabs, 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 12 to Friday 15 March 2019, hundreds of thousands of people will descend on the Gloucestershire spa town for the world-famous spectacle of The Festival™ presented by Magners 2019.

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

Champion Day will get the festivities off to a flying start on Tuesday, featuring the most important hurdle race of the season and great entertainment during the day; while Ladies Day on Wednesday sees a splash colour, first-class fashion, and of course, exhilarating races for all to enjoy.

St Patrick’s Day Thursday promises to be a fantastically Irish affair complete with a Guinness Village and live music; while the event culminates with The Magners Cheltenham Gold Cup, the pinnacle of jump racing and unmissable event for racegoers from around the globe.

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™ presented by Magners and Gold Cup Day 2019 is not to be missed.
