Lechlade Festival in the Cotswolds

Lechlade Festival in the Cotswolds

We are always on the look out for family friendly festivals and Lechlade not only has great music but some fantastic family fun too.

Now in its 9th year, the multi award-winning Lechlade Festival returns over the bank holiday weekend from 24th to 26th May 2019.

This year’s festival promises to be bigger and better, jam-packed with over 100 performers, including Ivor Novello award-winning, Brit Award-nominated band The Feeling as headliners. Saturday night sees the return of ‘That 80s Rock Show’, performing 80s stadium rock anthems and power ballads with larger than life characters.

The festival is sticking firmly to its roots as a family friendly event, with comedy, camping, boutique glamping, free music, dance and craft workshops, circus skills tent, burlesque and more.  Fab food, real ales, stalls and rides complete the weekend.

Children 16 and under go free, whether camping or visiting for the day. Make the most of your bank holiday weekend with a stay alongside the River Thames in the glorious Cotswolds.
