Wychwood Festival turns Cheltenham racecourse into a star-studded, family-friendly weekend. Musical legends like Bob Geldof, The Stranglers, UB40 and The Proclaimers bring a party atmosphere to the festival's four stages, while the ample side-entertainment such as theatre and comedy make Wychwood a unique all-round experience.

The kids' entertainment takes care of toddlers right through to early teens, while all-age workshops offer something for parents to join in with too. And once they're tucked up in bed (too hopeful?) there's always Wychwood's real ale festival to get your taste buds going.

Cheltenham racecourse is a beautiful, historic and easily accessible venue that will provide its usual elegance for Wychwood's 12th birthday celebrations in 2016.
