The Cotswolds offers a plethora of festivals throughout the summer, and especially during the height of the summer holidays.

For the more high brow audiences, the Cheltenham Music Festival has an eclectic mix of classical and jazz music in mid July.  The Longborough Opera Festival concludes its season 28th July -2nd August with the Emerging Artists programme double bill. This is comprised of Freya Waley Cohen’s ‘Spell Book’, a dramatic song cycle inspired by the composers’s encounter with Rebecca Tamas’ collection of poems, Witch, and Caccini’s La liberazione di Ruggiero dall’isola d’Alcina.


22nd -31st July
Guiting Music Festival
The festival brings a variety of highly talented performances of Classical, Jazz and Blues music by artists from around the world in the pretty Cotswold setting of Guiting Power.

28th July - 1st August 
The 'World of Music, Arts and Dance' is finally celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, after a few covid induced postponements. They plan to make up for lost time with a bumper four days on Charlton Park in Malmesbury.

5th - 7th August
Wilderness Festival
Unwind in relaxing lakeside spas and watch a host of fantastic live entertainment by day… and by night you can retreat to your boutique camping spot or sip cocktails.

26th - 29th August 
The Big Feastival
The Cotswolds summer music festival goes out with a bang with the hugely popular Big Feastival, founder Alex James has vowed to build on last year's sell out event and book the strongest line-up ever.
