With over 20,000 music-fans getting in the festival swing every year, and Jamie Cullum and Moira Stuart amongst our biggest fans, Cheltenham has become one of the country’s best-loved jazz festivals. Our trade-mark mix of international jazz icons, up-and-coming new artists and unique festival performances has seen us host some of the world’s greatest musicians over the Bank Holiday weekend. Previous guests include Jamie Cullum, Hugh Laurie, Eartha Kitt, Imelda May, Van Morrison, Stephane Grappelli and Ornette Coleman.
Our festival site in Montpellier Gardens at the heart of Cheltenham is the perfect place to soak up an outstanding festival atmosphere. Featuring a feast of free outdoor music, a selection of food and drink stalls, and fun family activities – it’s the only place to be over the Bank Holiday weekend.
