Welcome to Wychwood Festival
Wychwood Festival returns to Cheltenham racecourse for its 14th annual year from the
1st to the 3rd of June, 2018.
The UK's favourite family festival takes place within the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside, with over 100 acts performing across four stages, plus music, dance and arts workshops, a circus school and a programme of talks, debates and comedy for all ages.
With optional idyllic camping and something to satisfy all appetites, there’s no wonder Wychwood has been nominated as ‘Best Family Festival’ each year at the UK Festival awards.
Quick links Main Stage and Arena
Brimming with stalls and attractions, this is the place where our biggest bands will entertain you until 11pm each day.
Our 2017 headline acts were The Buzzcocks, OMD and The Levellers, plus dozens of other fantastic bands and family favourite Katy Ashworth, Cbeebies star.
The Big Top is our multi-purpose indoor venue. This large circus tent hosts great music variety during the day before becoming our Headphone Disco venue at night.
The Hobgoblin stage is where you’ll find the best home grown talent as picked by Glovebox promotions and BBC Hereford & Worcester. The stage is also the home of our late night Comedy Stage in association with eFestivals.
Food & Drink
We're proud to present a veritable selection of food, with a delicious array of offerings for a bleary eyed breakfast to late night snack while you wind your way back to your tent. We have both wholesome and naughty food for all the family, including food for vegetarians and vegans, so rest assured your taste buds will be catered for!
