Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

Our online ticketing systems Tessitura and Tessitura Card Server (card payment authorisation service) use temporary session cookies enabling customers to pass through the correct payment pathway. These cookies therefore enable services customers have specifically asked for, that is, they enable customers to book and purchase tickets for an event.

We use other cookies to enhance your experience navigating through our website, anonymously collecting information on pages visited.

Third Party Cookies

Cheltenham Festivals use third parties to either provide additional functionality on the websites (such as Facebook Like buttons) or to track users anonymously (such as Google Analytics) and report back to funders and stakeholders the information needed to allow us to continue to provide the website and events programme. Some of these services will set cookies in the process, but may use these cookies for their own purposes. Cheltenham Festivals does not have direct control over these websites or cookies.

This website has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information you provide us. We confirm to the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard. Our secure server software SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure online transactions. SSL has cryptographic protocols that provide secure communications on the Internet for such things as web browsing, email, Internet faxing, instant messaging and other data transfers.
