Whats On in Cheltenham

Cheltenham is the Cultural Centre for the Cotswolds, where festivals and events in particular are a huge part of what Cheltenham is all about. 

The annual calendar of what’s on in Cheltenham is packed full of a wide range of fantastic events covering every season, adding to our status of a year-round destination, with events catering for all ages and interests.

Most notably Cheltenham is known for the Racecourse and the annual Cheltenham Festivals series, which will return in 2017 with all festival dates now confirmed for the Jazz, Science, Music and Literature Festivals.  Each of these events creates a fantastic buzz around the town, with an eclectic mix of culture, music, poetry and dance, with many famous faces certainly gracing the festival series stage.

Other annual events also set to return in 2017 now include the well-established Wychwood Music Festival, Folk Three (previously Cheltenham Folk Festival), Cheltenham Poetry Festival, Cheltenham Wine Festival and Cheltenham Food and Drink Festival.

Cheltenham also plays host to many theatrical performances at The Everyman, The Playhouse and The Bacon Theatre.  From ballet to Shakespeare and panto to proms, we are lucky to be able to boast about many fantastic shows and stars that grace the stage and add to Cheltenham’s appeal as a year-round event destination.

Cheltenham Town Hall, The Wilson – Cheltenham’s Museum and Art Gallery, and Leisure at Cheltenham put on a full calendar of annual events too, including many events for children throughout the school holidays.

For sports enthusiasts, you can’t go wrong on a summer’s day by visiting the Brewin Dolphin Cheltenham Cricket Festival, or maybe take in a day’s horse racing at any time from Autumn through to Spring.  Of course, recently promoted Cheltenham Town FC can also be seen in action throughout the football season!

Close by, you will be able to visit many of the well-known county shows, including RHS Malvern Spring Festival, Three Counties Show, Cotswolds Show and Moreton in Marsh Show, with a selection of first class agricultural, equine displays and events, and trade stands displaying arts, crafts and a selection of locally made food and drink.

Each autumn, Cheltenham is on the programme for the Heritage Open Days, where many of our historic buildings open their doors to the public.  Guided Walking Tours are also available from sprint to autumn.

Cheltenham is now seeing many of our local pubs and cafes hosting gigs and live music, which are becoming ever popular across the town.

Add to this the many other events throughout the year for children and adults alike, whatever time of year you choose to visit Cheltenham, there will be something to keep you entertained.
