Cheltenham Festival: When is the 2022 Cheltenham Festival?

When do we get to do it all again?


This year’s Cheltenham Festival provided four days of thrilling, frenetic racing at Prestbury Park. There’s just one question remaining… when do we do it all again in 2022? Paddy Power News has all the answers.

When is the Cheltenham Festival 2022?

The highlight of the National Hunt calendar takes place between Tuesday, March 15 and Friday, March 18 in 2022. As per tradition, the Champion Hurdle and the Queen Mother Champion Chase are the feature races on the first two days. The Stayers’ Hurdle, sponsored by Paddy Power for the past two years, is the centrepiece of the third day. The Gold Cup rounds off the Championship races on the fourth and final day of racing at the Gloucestershire track.

Cheltenham’s November Meeting in 2021 takes place between Friday, November 12 to Sunday, November 14. It’s always a handy pointer towards form ahead of the following year’s Festival. Paddy Power Day takes place on Saturday November 13 featuring the Paddy Power Gold Cup.

Will fans be allowed to attend the Cheltenham Festival in 2022?

There was one thing missing in 2021 – the crowds.

If all continues to go well on the old coronavirus front then the stands at Cheltenham Racecourse should be packed to the brim next year. The UK Government lifted lockdown restrictions in July, allowing for for mass events to resume. Happy days.

Should you fancy a trip to Cheltenham for the Festival next year then you can snap up tickets on The Jockey Club’s website. See you there!
