Welcome to the Winchcombe Festival of Music and Arts, celebrating the best local bands, groups, artists, poets and writers.
The historic stone built town of Winchcombe stands near the foot of the northern Cotswold hills. Traditional limestone houses with steep gables and stone slate roofs still line its main streets as the town’s highways and byways recall the tramp of pilgrims, soldiers, nobles and kings. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty visitors to the town can enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the unique attractions of nearby Sudeley Castle, the preserved steam railway line and the already famous walking trails.
Today it is a living and working community of many interests and talents. The creative energy in the town has encouraged a lively range of communal and social activities led by the vibrant Winchcombe Festival of Music and Arts.
The 2016 Festival took place between 23rd and 30th May 2016 and was a huge success. Thank you to all the wonderful artists and performers who took part and made it such a memorable week! Of course, it would not have been possible without all our amazing volunteers so again a big thank you to them.
