What is a Patronage?

A Patronage is a way to both support and enjoy the work of the Cheltenham Festivals and makes the perfect gift too for a culture lover. We have three levels of Patronage available at different price points, which contribute to the funding of the organisation as well as unlocking a set of exclusive benefits, including priority booking, exclusive events, hospitality area access at Jazz, Music and Literature, ticket discounts and acknowledgement.

Discuss becoming a Patron

To discuss joining Cheltenham Festivals as a Patron please email patrons@cheltenhamfestivals.com and a member of the team will be in touch.
