Cheltenham Festival Racecourse

Being the biggest race meeting in the National Hunt Season it’s proven to provide impeccable corporate hospitality and create long lasting memories. Cheltenham Festival includes a number of different corporate hospitality packages to cater for changing needs from the Needham and Needham boxes which provide a magnificent unobstructed view of the whole course to the Marquee Hospitality which is in the heart of the action close to the Parade Ring and Grandstand and is superb value for money.

Dating back to 1815, Cheltenham Horse Racing has a remarkable amount of history behind today’s races. Significant expansion has been undergone since the beginnings of the Cheltenham Festival. Perhaps the most important year for the future of the Racecourse was the founding of The Racecourse Holdings Trust in 1964, from then onwards expansion was needed to be able to hold the growing numbers of crowds coming to the watch one of the best dates in the sporting calendar.
