They’re under starters orders…and they’re off!

Cheltenham Gold Cup Day in support of The Injured Jockeys Fund

The Gold Cup is the climax of the jump racing season and the most prestigious of all National Hunt events.  It is also the most valuable non-handicap chase in Britain with a prize fund of more than £550,000. It’s no wonder The Gold Cup is a “must see” event in the racing calendar.

At The Garden Rooms and in support of The Injured Jockeys Fund, we are recreating the atmosphere of Gold Cup day with an afternoon of live TV coverage, food and entertainment to make the most of this thrilling annual event.   Set in our  Cloisters venue, join us and enjoy:
