Families Welcome

Children & Families

Cheltenham Festivals have signed up to the Family Arts Standards to ensure that we provide a warm welcome to families.

We want to ensure that everyone is safe and can enjoy our Festivals so here’s some helpful booking information for families planning a visit.

  • The age recommendations shown are a guide to the age group we think will enjoy the event most. They are not a restriction; you know your child best.
  • Children aged 11 years and under must be accompanied by a ticket-holder aged 16 or over approved by the parent or guardian of that child. This person can accompany a maximum of 6 children to an event.
  • Everyone over the age of 12 months is allocated a seat and requires a ticket, while babies in arms (12 months and under) do not require a ticket unless otherwise stated.
  • Our prices are kept as low as possible to allow for this.
  • Cheltenham Festivals maintains a Safeguarding Policy but cannot take responsibility for unsupervised children.
