If you are looking for great music in a beautiful rural setting then the Guiting Festival is for you.
Each summer we celebrate outstanding musical performances from world-class artists in the relaxed, informal context of England's beautiful Cotswold countryside.
We aim to bring you an exciting range of classical, jazz and folk music performances in concerts that are held in the Guiting Power Village Hall or outdoors in the adjacent playing fields.
Guiting Power is a beautiful, rural village in the heart of the Gloucestershire Cotswold Hills and is within easy reach of nearby towns such as Cheltenham, Winchcombe, Stow-on-the-Wold, Broadway and Stratford-upon-Avon.
Guiting Power's roots can be traced back over a thousand years to Anglo-Saxon times and its medieval heritage is still visible today.
Time after time the village has proven to be the ideal venue for the Festival since its inauguration nearly half a century ago.
The Guiting Festival is a registered charity and is run entirely by volunteers.
It is funded exclusively by ticket receipts, sponsorship and donations.
Our objectives are to bring outstanding live music to the Cotswolds at a price that makes it available to as wide an audience as possible.
All surplus funds are ploughed back into the festival to ensure that you continue to enjoy exciting performances from some of today's most talented musical artists.
Please consider making a donation to support the 2014 Festival.
You can donate on-line by credit or debit card quickly and securely with PayPal
