Cheltenham Festival Preview Dinner at The Wild Rabbit

The Cheltenham Festival is one of the most important dates in the racing calendar and a highlight of the National Hunt season at The Wild Rabbit.

For the second year running we will be celebrating the Festival by hosting a very special preview dinner with well-known faces from the local world of racing on Monday 2nd March.

Guests will be seated in our dining room at 7pm, with each table hosted by trainers, jockeys, breeders and owners to discuss the hotly anticipated week ahead and racing tips. Our experts include trainer and Telegraph racing columnist Charlie Brooks, trainers Tom Lacey, Nicky Henderson, Ben Pauling, JonJo O’Neill, Kim Bailey, Martin Keighley and Graeme McPherson, and former jockey Colin Brown.

Our Head Chef Nathan Eades has carefully curated a seasonal menu for guests to enjoy during the evening’s festivities detailed below.
