Enjoy a magical day out at Fantasy Forest Festival at Sudeley Castle this summer.

The popular family-friendly festival is set to offer another weekend of lively entertainment, outdoor activities, and fun for all ages.

The festival runs over the weekend of Friday, July 16, to Sunday, July 18, with unique experiences, fantastic food and drink, and much more.

Set within the stunning grounds of Sudeley Castle, Fantasy Forest festival offers an exciting day out for all ages.

Visitors can try their hand at a range of craft and skills workshops, enjoy live music, watch impressive falconry displays, have a go at soft archery, explore the market stalls or listen to captivating storytelling.

A highlight of the festival will take place on the Saturday when a beautifully crafted wicker sculpture is lit in a spectacular fire display.

Fantasy Forest is a welcoming and inclusive festival celebrating sci-fi and fantasy, so fans from Game of Thrones to Star Wars, Lord of the Rings to Marvel superheroes, and even little pirates and fairies will be in their element.

Visitors will enjoy a magical weekend of fun and entertainment at one of the Cotswolds' best-known venues, just minutes away from Cheltenham and Tewkesbury, and with easy access to Worcestershire too.

Day tickets are available or visitors can stay for the weekend and camp within the beautiful, historic grounds of Sudeley Castle, with the option to book a luxury pre-pitched tent or bring your own.

The whole family is welcome, with children under 7 free, and dogs are also welcome in most areas providing they remain on a lead and owners clean up after them.
