Classical, Jazz and Folk Music in The Cotswolds

24th July to 2nd August 2015

For well over 40 years the Guiting Music Festival has been a highlight of the Cotswolds summer calendar, bringing an exciting variety of highly talented performances of Classical, Jazz and Folk music by artists from around the world. It has built up a strong band of very loyal regular supporters.

The GMF is a registered charity run entirely by volunteers, with tremendous support coming from our loyal band of long-standing Sponsors, Donors and Patrons, all of which results in the lowest possible ticket prices for some of today's most outstanding musicians.

Two days of Folk with four great performers, folk music fans are sure to be delighted again this year.
And, if that isn't enough, we've even managed to reduce the ticket prices, too!

Jazz Concerts

Five artists, four days, from the sultry, husky tones of Purdy and the unique vivacity of Abi Flynn, through the fusion of Lizzie Ball's jazz violin with Christina McMaster's classical piano, to the best of Andy Sheppard's Hotel Bristol, we really do know how to spoil our jazz fans!

Classical Concerts

We bring you the best artists at the cheapest prices  - from Joanna MacGregor's opening concert to Natalie Clein's closing concert, or one of the three other superb concerts in between, you won't be disappointed!

An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Cotswolds AONB

Guiting Power is set in the heart of the Cotswolds, a designated
Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The music is great so why not have a great setting, too?
