The Festival™ is just around the corner and you can almost hear the famous roar. The trials have been run, and the best trainers, jockeys and horses are having their final preparations for Jump racing’s biggest week of the year – the Cheltenham Festival.

 From Tuesday 15 – Friday 18 March, Prestbury Park comes alive with four days of extraordinary sport. Champions are crowned and legends are made as racegoers will cheer home the equine stars once more.

Away from the course, the action does not stop. The Guinness Village is always a hive of activity with live music throughout the day and plenty of outdoor bars for refreshments. The Orchard™ will return in 2022, bigger and better than ever. The Orchard continues to blossom as one of the key spots on the racecourse, with brands such as Bentley and Boodles never failing to add a little extra sparkle.

 The Shopping Village will host over 60 trade stands from the popular Holland Cooper Clothing to hidden gems such as World Secrets, and Cirencester-based Sheep and Chic. The perfect place to shop ‘til you drop and grab yourself a memento to take home from a fantastic day’s racing. 

 Cheltenham Festival brings in over £100million to the local economy, and is also a huge part of the community. In 2021 WellChild, a national Charity whose headquarters are based in Cheltenham partnered with the Cheltenham Gold Cup where over £250,000 was raised for the charity. This year, WellChild will be the official Charity Partner of The Festival™ 2022 with a number of exciting activations taking place.

 Tickets are on sale for The Festival, with hospitality and general admission still available. For more information, head to: www.thejockeyclub.co.uk/cheltenham
