National Hunt's jewel in the crown Cheltenham Festival drew in record numbers of 260,579 this year - a 5% increase on 2015. In total 28 races were ran over the four day event and 150 million bets placed with 4.1 million in prize money.
Attwoolls Triple Deck and Double Deck hospitality marquees were positioned in front of the parade ring where crowds had first class views on the balconies to cheer the winners entering the enclosure. A double deck was also supplied for media and single deck structures housed the security, Information, catering and additional restaurants.
We also provided a 68m x 25m Clearspan for the Best Mate Bar where probably most of the 265,000 pints of Beer and Guinness are imbibed! Alongside this we provided an 20m x 30m Clearspan for the Food Hall and an 18m x 18m additional Bar area.
Royalty, Celebrities and Fashion are always to be expected at Cheltenham Races though perhaps this year they were upstaged by the latest in horse trending!

What did they think?
Ian Renton, Regional Director for Cheltenham and the South West, The Jockey Club, said:
"This year’s Festival has once again proved to be a huge success, with over 260,000 people visiting the site over the four days. There was some exceptional racing, with the likes of Annie Power, Sprinter Sacre and Don Cossack all winning Championship Races and providing some special moments in the Winners Enclosure.
We very much look forward to starting to plan for The Festival in 2017."
