Cheltenham Racecourse Corporate Hospitality – Cheltenham Festival Packages and Private Boxes for 2023/24
Cheltenham Racecourse is the home of jump racing and now it has the facilities to match!
Located at Prestbury Park, its most prestigious meeting is the Cheltenham Festival, held in March, which features several Grade I races including the Boodles Gold Cup, Champion Hurdle, Queen Mother Champion Chase and Stayers Hurdle.
Cheltenham Racecourse has a scenic location in a natural amphitheatre just below the escarpment of the Cleeve Hills.
It has been described as “the heart of almost every aspect of jump racing. This is the place where owners, trainers, jockeys, stable staff and breeders dream of having winners. It’s the place where the most important races are run. This is where many stars of the future go through the sale ring. But most of all, this is the place where the equine and human champions forge their reputations.”
Hundreds of thousands of racing fans come to Cheltenham Racecourse every year, but you don’t need to be an expert to have the time of your life.
However, the focus of any jumping season is always the Cheltenham Festival.
It is the shining jewel in jump racing’s crown. Four days of magic, magnificence and madness, playing to an audience of 235,000 people, all of whom are determined to have the time of their lives.
And, following a £45 million redevelopment it now has the facilities to back its pre-eminence.
Princess Anne officially opened the new grandstand that is named after her.
The Princess Royal Grandstand was the final part of the scheme which took 19 months to complete. The stand, which replaced the previous 1920s structure, houses restaurants, bars, private boxes, viewing facilities for racegoers and a new royal box.
It was the largest project ever undertaken by the Jockey Club, coming in on time and on budget.
The ground floor consists of a public bar, called the Vestey Bar after Lord Vestey who was chairman of Cheltenham Racecourse for 21 years until 2011, and features a bistro providing hot food.
The first floor of the stand provides a bar for Annual Members plus the Big Buck’s Champagne Bar, named after the horse that won an unprecedented four Stayers Hurdles and 18 consecutive races.
The second floor consists of an Owners & Trainers Bar, with a balcony overlooking the Parade Ring, horsewalk and course, plus the exclusive Cotswolds Club.
The Royal Box and 11 private boxes are on the third floor.
The top floor houses The Cheltenham Club, where members are allocated a table for the season, from which to enjoy a four course, a la carte lunch, stunning views of Cleeve Hill and the Malvern Hills at the back of the stand and even a fireplace to keep warm between races during the winter months, a combination of unrivalled fine dining and a stunning sporting setting.
The opening of the new stand signified the end of a redevelopment which incorporated 14 different projects including a refurbished weighing room, a new first aid room and crescent walkway greatly assisting racegoers’ mobility behind the grandstand and offering additional viewing of the parade ring.
Cheltenham Racecourse hospitality facilities have always been the height of luxury and exclusivity.
No wonder the Cheltenham Festival is so popular with the Irish who cross the water to attend in their thousands.
Estimated gate receipts total around £7 million while around £600 million is wagered on racing during the occasion.
Just fantastic – full of the craic, as the Irish would say, hospitality second to none.
