The Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival, Tuesday 14th – Friday 17th March 2023.

The magnificent annual four-day Horse Racing event that is the Cheltenham Festival is being held this year from Tuesday 14th until Friday 17th March. One of the biggest race meetings in the Country, this prestigious event in the National Hunt Racing Calendar has big prize money up for grabs by the lucky punters, second only to the money bet and won on the Grand National.   Hundreds of millions of pounds are gambled, lost and won over the course of the four days!  Coinciding with St Patrick’s Day the races are incredibly popular with the Irish pundits.

To cater for all the excited race goers that flock to the colourful scene there are many food and drink marquees supplied by a company such as who specialise in Marquee Hire Cheltenham.  The smorgasbord of flavours and food on offer varies from Italian Cuisine, Indian curries, British burgers and chips to Chinese and Asian noodles.  The huge variety of alcoholic drinks to wash all this food down doesn’t disappoint and of course there’s always a cold pint or two of Guinness to enjoy.

These marquees are incredibly popular during the four days of jump racing, including the Queen Mother Champion Chase, the Cheltenham Gold Cup, the Champion Hurdle and the Stayers Hurdle, and here extremely large quantities of both food and drink are consumed while the happy gamblers exchange stories of both big wins and equally big loses!
