Get ready for Cheltenham in the Plumpton Marquee………..

On Anglo-Irish Day, join us in the Plumpton marquee for a perfect start to Cheltenham Week 2019! With Guinness Hats available to the first 200 in the room, the Wild Murphy’s playing all day in the facility, a great package available for just £20 and the Cheltenham Preview Panel getting underway at 1pm with Colin Brown (racing pundit and jockey of Desert Orchid), Simon Clare (PR Director for Coral), Jamie Moore (Top jockey and Cheltenham Festival winner), Dave Crosse (Plumpton hospitality host and current jockey) and other jockeys here on the day, we’ll get some fantastic insight into the week ahead.

Within the marquee will be a full bar, food options and with its location close to the final fence, you’ll have a perfect vantage point from which to enjoy the day.

For this day only we are running a very special package, and for just £20 you can get your entrance ticket, racecard, drink of choice (pint, glass of wine or soft drink only) and a pie/stew all from the marquee. This package must be booked in advance and will not be available on the day.

anglo irish raceday 2018

The 2018/19 season has been an exciting season so far for Plumpton, with three serious contenders going Cheltenham in March all with strong chances, and therefore banking Plumpton's, Cheltenham Bonus Series. We will be keeping an eye out for Kalashnikov on Tuesday in the Arkle, OK Corral in the National Hunt Chase and Master Malarky in one of the handicaps. If they go on to win during The Festival, they will win an extra £60,000!

Everyone is welcome in the marquee and particularly the Cheltenham Preview at 12.45pm, but if you fancied something to make the day special why not give the Paddock Restaurant a try? Come rain or shine, you’ll be in prime position to enjoy the day. With an exquisite 3 course meal, table for the day, racecard, tipsters talk, tea/coffee and table service – there isn’t a better way to enjoy your day.
