Cheltenham Races: The Exodus

The biggest event in Cheltenham is the Gold Cup at the racecourse. Close to St Patrick's Day, it attracts many Irish people. If you ever travel in Ireland and mention Cheltenham, they reply "Ah! The Gold Cup". It causes immense traffic chaos in the town and I usually avoid it but this year I decided to try and capture the ebb and flow with my camera

The busses that will bear the crowds away queue quietly and the taxis gather


The crowd take over the A435


Down the hill by Pitville Park
...past some young buskers
Some in celbratory mood
...guided by friendly locals
Some take to the sky to promote their business

Keeping a baloon in place is a serious job
...so is marshalling the busses
Local businesses stand ready
...and the pub overflows onto the pavement
