Event Details

Cheltenham Racecourse 15/03/2016 | 10:30 - 18:00

The Festival Website



The tapes go up and the famous Cheltenham Roar marks the start of four days of the best Jump racing anywhere in the world. After 12 months, The Festival is back and Champion Day is a fitting way to start proceedings with seven nail biting races to enjoy.

The highlight race on the card is the Stan James Champion Hurdle, where in 2015 we saw Faugheen win the race very impressively for trainer Willie Mullins, just one of four winners Willie Mullins had on the first day. Record books were broken as Willie and his charges made it to the Winner’s Enclosure four times that day with Glen’s Melody, Un De Secaux and Douvan.

Seven cracking races and the unique first day atmosphere make this one of the sporting highlights of the year and Cheltenham busiest day of the season, outside of Gold Cup Day.

Please note that tickets for The Festival will not be dispatched until September.

Ticket prices for The Festival increase closer to the event. The first prices will increase at midnight on Saturday 24th October, with prices increasing again at midnight on Sunday 15th November, midnight on Friday 29th January and finally on Sunday 13th March.
