The Cheltenham Festival is fast approaching with only four weeks to go.

This is the ultimate jumps racing festival which showcases some of the top racehorses from the UK and Ireland. The Festival takes place at the home of jumps racing, Cheltenham Racecourse, which is nestled amongst the beautiful rolling Cotswolds hills in Prestbury Park.

The four days of racing consist of an incredible 14 Group 1 races including the famous Cheltenham Gold Cup on the Friday. The week kicks off with Champion Day on Tuesday 10th followed by Ladies Day on Wednesday 11th, St Patrick’s Day Thursday 12th and Gold Cup Day, Friday 13th. There is something for everyone with ample bars and food outlets as well as an incredible shopping village and other interesting hubs of bands and live music; not forgetting to mention the heart of the Festival, the Guinness Village.

Racing Breaks have an incredible selection of packages available for The Festival which include a round of golf at a number of the UK’s best golf resorts, The Celtic Manor. Celebrating 10 years since Colin Montgomerie’s successful European Ryder Cup victory, The Celtic Manor and it’s famed Twenty Ten golf course has gone from strength to strength, welcoming many golfers and winning countless awards.

The Racing Breaks VIP Bar is the perfect place to base yourself throughout the day as it provides a private area to sit down, relax, and enjoy a few drinks away from the crowds.

Located above the Guinness Village in the heart of the racecourse, the VIP Bar is in the perfect place to enjoy all that the Festival has to offer. You can watch over the lively punters enjoying a few live tunes in the Guinness Village and/or take a seat in the Guinness Grandstand seats overlooking the final fence as each race takes place.

The bar is complimentary all day with house wines, beer and soft drinks so you don’t have to queue up for any length of time to refresh yourself.

What’s more, the bar will be hosting a celebrity preview panel every day before the first race. This year, the panel will be hosted by Racing Presenter Mike Cattermole, Talk Sports’ Alan Brazil, Racing Post Tipster Paul Kealy, Ex Jockey and ITV Racing presenter Mick Fitzgerald, and there may even be an appearance from former world number 1 golfer Lee Westwood!
