Cheltenham Festivals Series

Every year Cheltenham welcomes more than 2,500 of the world’s finest musicians, writers, scientists, performers and thinkers to join with us to entertain and inspire festival audiences of all ages.

Cheltenham Festivals is the charitable organisation behind the town’s internationally acclaimed Jazz, Science, Music and Literature Festivals. Through cutting edge and creative programming, Cheltenham’s four inspirational festivals have been at the fore-front of the UK’s cultural scene since the inaugural Music Festival in 1945.

By championing the best up-and-coming young talent, celebrating the work of established artists and commissioning unique and surprising performances, Cheltenham Festivals remain a cultural force to be reckoned with.

Schools, young people and our local community can enjoy the Festivals year round through our extensive programme of educational workshops, talks, projects and inspiring activities.

From just three concerts at the very first Cheltenham Festival, the four festivals now feature nearly 1,000 events and sell over 215,000 tickets annually. Alongside box office sales we rely on sponsorship, grants and charitable giving to secure our international profile and position at Cheltenham’s cultural core.

All four Festivals (Jazz, Science, Music and Literature) will be involved with …around town, which is expected to reach more than 400,000 people via its pop-up events, providing a window for a wider audience into the vibrant world of the Festivals. Cheltenham Festivals aims to add to Cheltenham’s attraction as a cultural destination, to provide a platform for local artists and to create more opportunities for local businesses, encouraging residents and visitors alike to come into town.
