To keep everyone safe tickets to this year’s Science Festival are being sold online only from our website and seating for events will be socially distanced. You will be able to choose what seats you sit in using our interactive seating plan. Although it may take you a little longer to book your tickets, we hope that this will give you reassurance and confidence, knowing that you are socially distanced from other audience members. To support you in booking your seats we have staggered the Member on sale.

Ticket Discounts (Silver & Gold Members only)
  • Ticket discounts are 10% per event.
  • All discounts and concessions are offered subject to availability on a limited allocation basis.

  • Discounts cannot be combined with other offers, or applied retrospectively.
  • Discounted tickets are only to be used by the Member and are not transferable.
  • Cheltenham Festivals reserves the right to make additional targeted special ticket offers in addition to those offered published in brochures or on websites from time to time. Cheltenham Festivals may also withdraw any offers.
Gift Aid and Membership

If you are a UK taxpayer please consider signing up for Gift Aid when you purchase a Bronze of Silver membership. Gift Aid increases the value of your membership and any other donations you make to our charity by 25%, because Cheltenham Festivals can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift – at no extra cost to you.

Please note that due to the value of benefits available, unfortunately Gold membership is no longer eligible for Gift Aid.
