16 March - 19 March 21
This is one of the most important dates in the National Hunt season with race prize money only second to that of the Grand National. The Cheltenham Festival is a four day event held in mid-March each year and is a date not to be missed for horse enthusiasts. Some of the finest horses, jockeys and trainers in the world descend on Cheltenham to compete while race-goers soak up the atmosphere.
Based on current Government restrictions, professional sport is able to continue under stringent health and safety protocols, without spectators present. In horseracing’s case this is vital to support the livelihoods of the many thousands of people who rely on the industry and for the welfare of the thousands of Thoroughbred racehorses who live and train in Britain.
This means that under current restrictions, The Festival will take place as a televised event, but sadly without spectators at the course. We continue to monitor Government guidance and should this change in advance of THe Festival we will let you know.
