Christmas jumpers on show at Cheltenham Racecourse

Where: Cheltenham Racecourse

When: Friday, December 13, and Saturday, December 14

On Friday, December 13, and Saturday, December 14, Cheltenham Racecourse will celebrate Christmas Jumper Day and encourage all racegoers to don their festive jumper for the two-day International meeting.

Racegoers will have the chance of winning on-the-spot prizes for the most fun and festive jumper and prizes will include a pair tickets to any of the forthcoming race meetings including The Festival™, presented by Magners.

Two great days of racing are scheduled to warm the cockles with seven races each day in what will no doubt provide some thrilling action on the course.

On Saturday, racegoers will be greeted by Midlife Choir-Sis who will be singing Christmas carols to maintain the festive mood plus there will be performances The Hip Cats around the racecourse.

The feature race of the fixture is the Unibet International Hurdle and stands as a hugely significant race in its own right. It's also one of the leading trials for Unibet Champion Hurdle in March. Another highlight is the Caspian Caviar December Gold Cup.

Alongside the racing, racegoers will also get the chance to browse the stands in The Shopping Village, useful for those last-minute Christmas presents.

Gates open at 10am on both days, with the first race at 12.10pm.
