Cheltenham Racecourse

Cheltenham Racecourse

The Racecourse employs over 60 permanent staff, which rises to approximately 1,000 for a race meeting and over 5,000 at The Festival.

The Cheltenham Festival is worth an estimated £50m to the local economy and hosts the largest Tented Village of any kind at a sporting event. Over £2m is spent each year on temporary facilities alone.

Festival drinkers get through 18,000 bottles of Champagne and 214,000 pints of Guinness. Prize money at Cheltenham exceeds £6m throughout the season with £3.67m on offer at The Festival alone, making it the most valuable and prestigious fixture in Jump racing.

The racecourse is also home to many other organizations and businesses including Cotswold RDA, Cheltenham Archery and Clubs for Angling and Model Aircraft.

Throughout the year we welcome over 700,000 visitors to the racecourse and hope that every visitor - horse or human - enjoy their visit and will be back soon.
