Our annual Cheltenham Festival Preview Night, at Cartmel Racecourse, will be held on Thursday 9th March – commencing at 7.00pm.
The evening will be chaired by our race-day presenter, John Sexton, who will introduce our panel of experts including regulars: Jimmy Moffatt and Marten Julian, plus at least one other - most likely a jockey with rides at the meeting. Every year the panel give their views on all the top races, including some golden nuggets of betting information – so remember to bring a pen and pad with you!
The ticket price, of £16 per person, includes a delicious one-course dinner which is served half way through the evening. The night is always popular, so if you fancy getting an expert ‘heads up’ then please call the racecourse office on 015395 36340 to book your tickets.
Although there will also be trains running from Lancaster and Barrow to Cartmel on Sunday 29th May (the date of the Jools Holland concert), prior to the event, there will be a more limited service during the evening after the concert - with trains departing in the direction of Barrow-in-Furness only.
Camping pitches for caravans and campervans, on the Simply Red Raceday, sold out in less than two hours when they went on sale on Monday 15th February.
Pitches are still available for tents. The £30 camping fee includes a pitch for two nights (Friday 27th and Saturday 28th May) for two people. Pitches for campervans are available for some of the other racedays during Cartmel's Summer season.
