The multi-award winning, family-friendly Lechlade Festival returns for its 10th anniversary year over the May bank holiday weekend.

It offers three days of live music and family entertainment with over 100 bands and performers, burlesque, comedy and much more.

The intoxicating line-up features emerging bands from around the UK and Europe. Be prepared to discover new favourites and exciting new bands and talent.

A packed programme of free workshops for kids and adults include circus skills, music and dance, crafts and relaxation.

The shopping village offers all manner of temptation and a wide selection of food stalls offers something for everyone. Rides, games and costumed characters keep the kids entertained.

Very Early Bird tickets ends November 30. Children 16 and under go free, although they must be accompanied by a responsible adult (25+) bearing a valid adult ticket.
