About the Guiting Music Festival
Indoor evening concerts are held in the Guiting Power Village Hall, GL54 5TX, and the two outdoor Sunday concerts are held on the playing field next to the village hall. Free parking is available in the adjacent field. Please bring your own seating and shelter to outdoor concerts and if you wish to erect a gazebo we ask that you arrive by 11.15am.
Tickets are free of charge for under 19’s at all concerts when accompanied by a ticket holding adult. Children’s tickets for indoor concerts must be booked via the ticket office, however this does not apply to outdoor concerts.
Well behaved dogs are welcome to join you at outdoor concerts, they must be kept on a lead at all times and we are happy to provide water. We regret that camping is not permitted. However, camping facilities can be found three miles away at the Cotswold Farm Park. Guiting Power offers accommodation at the Guiting Guest House and the Hollow Bottom pub, both within walking distance to our festival.
