Cheltenham Festival 2019

02/28/2019
Graphic News

March 12-15, 2019 -- The Cheltenham Festival, one of the most prestigious events in the world horse racing calendar, is held in Gloucestershire, England. This year’s festival will go ahead as normal despite a recent scare caused by an outbreak of equine flu that caused the lockdown of 174 racing stables across Britain.

The four-day festival features many of the best British and Irish trained horses and is particularly popular with Irish visitors.

The climax of the week is the Magners Cheltenham Gold Cup on Friday, with other highlights being Tuesday’s Unibet Champion Hurdle, Wednesday’s Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase and the Sun Racing Stayers’ Hurdle on Thursday.

The winner of the 2019 Gold Cup will be presented with the original 1924 trophy, after Cheltenham Racecourse regained ownership last year after decades of being held in private ownership.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
