The Park at Cheltenham Festival

The Park will deliver an electrifying atmosphere across all four days of the Festival, much similar to a concert or festival with live music, entertainment, quirky bars and a Ferris Wheel for all racegoers with Park tickets to enjoy alongside the on-track action.
The Park will also close off each day of the Festival with live DJ sets by a number of renowned DJ’s that include Nick Grimshaw from BBC Radio 1, who’ll be serving your favourite party classics on Champion Day; Capital FM’s DJ Marvin Humes, will be shutting things down on Gold Cup Day; Roman Kemp will have you swaying with his 90-minute set on St. Patrick’s Thursday and Love Island’s Laura Whitmore, will be blasting the tunes on Ladies Day.
You’ll be experiencing the Cheltenham Festival in a whole new light with The Park, which is situated within The Tented Village at Cheltenham Racecourse.
