In Pictures: Wychwood Festival 2022

Last weekend, Cheltenham Racecourse was transformed into a three-day festival including music, workshops, comedy, a Children's Literature Festival, headphone disco, healing gardens and much more.

After a two years of cancellations due to Covid-19, all stops had been pulled out for a chock-a-block programme of live artists at Wychwood Festival 2022.

Friday evening saw 'Murder on the Dancefloor' and 'Groovejet' chanteuse Sophie Ellis-Bextor headline the festival. 

Sophie shot to fame as a vocalist on Spiller's huge number one single and her debut album sold more than 2 million copies worldwide.

And supporting, the only group to have their record played twice in a row on his radio show by John Peel, Derry's finest export The Undertones graced the stage and kept the Teenage Kicks coming. 

But if disco was more your style, you didn't miss out either as Boney M had the crowd 100 per cent freaking, boogying, hustling, bumping, to their infectious disco classics.

This was all topped off with a huge array of arts and crafting opportunities for all the family from rod puppet making, messy painting, clay modelling and cross stitching. 

Whether it is watching a festival favourite, exploring new music and comedy, getting creative with a workshop or soaking in a dance performance there were so many experiences to be had over the weekend - Wychwood Festival is so much more than just a music festival.
