Classical and Jazz music at its best
Great music in the Cotswolds since 1970
Guiting Festival: Music in the Cotswolds
Home to exceptional music in the Cotswolds for over 40 years
Guiting Power is a beautiful, rural village in the heart of the Gloucestershire Cotswold Hills and is within easy reach of nearby towns such as Cheltenham, Winchcombe, Stow-on-the-Wold, Broadway and Stratford-upon-Avon.
Guiting Power's roots can be traced back over a thousand years to Anglo-Saxon times and its medieval heritage is still visible today.
Time after time the village has proven to be the ideal venue for the Festival since its inauguration nearly half a century ago.
The Guiting Festival is a non-profit, registered charity, which is run entirely by volunteers.
It is funded exclusively by ticket receipts, sponsorship and donations.
Our objectives are to bring outstanding live music to the Cotswolds at a price that makes it available to as wide an audience as possible.
All surplus funds are ploughed back into the festival to ensure that you continue to enjoy exciting performances from some of today's most talented musical artists.

Welcome to the Guiting Festival
The Guiting Festival is a summertime celebration of high quality music held at the end of July every year in the picturesque village of Guiting Power, set deep in the heart of the Gloucestershire Cotswold Hills.
For over 40 years the Guiting Festival has been a highlight of the Cotswold summer calendar.
Each festival features an exciting variety of Evening Concerts and an Open-air Concert, with performances from some of the most accomplished jazz and classical music artists available and in 2014 we are building upon this with a new and extended programme of performers.
2014 Guiting Festival
The 44th Guiting Festival in 2014 will run from Friday 25th July 2014 to Sunday 3rd August 2014, with the highly popular Open-air Jazz Concert on Sunday 27th July 2014.
For 2014 we are aiming to bring you a more diverse and extended Festival, building upon the highly successful classical, modern and jazz themes that have been the Festival's core to date.
In light of the Festival's highly popular and successful Sunday open-air jazz concerts, for 2014 we intend to extend the programme with a second open-air Sunday concert but this time with a electric folk theme.
The scope of our indoor concerts is also being extended with a greater range of artists and styles to appeal to a wider audience.
We are still finalising the 2014 programme but will publish details as soon as we can, hopefully before the New Year, and you will be able to buy tickets on-line much earlier than in previous years.
We really hope you enjoy looking through our website and discovering more about the festival.
