The festival will begin with Champion Day on Tuesday Mach 13th, when the tapes rise for the first race of the event and jockeys can look to make a big impact.

Following this will be Ladies Day, giving females an excellent opportunity to contend for a number of fashion awards and soak up the remarkable glamour of the event with a glass of champagne.

St Patrick's Thursday will commence on March 15th, a day that carries a charming Irish feel, with live music and dancing accompanying the intensely competitive races.

The day could also be fortuitous for those staking bets, who will surely be hoping for the luck of the Irish.

Wrapping up the festival will be Cheltenham Gold Cup day, providing a fantastic atmosphere and a day of gripping racing, where Long Run and Sam Waley-Cohen will be attempting to defend their title.

Therefore, with glamour, a great atmosphere and plenty of opportunities for people to strike a lucky bet, the Cheltenham Festival could represent a great day out for visitors to the Cotswolds.
