One of the UK's premier family music festivals

Wychwood Festival is one of the UK's best family-friendly music festivals, held each year on Cheltenham's famous racecourse. 

Attracting people of all ages, Wychwood has become renowned for its genre spanning lineups featuring legendary artists and fun and games for all ages, right down to its variety of kid activities.

To give you an idea: think comedy, face painting and more real ale than most beer festivals, all in the beautiful surroundings of the Cotswolds.
