Classical, Jazz and Folk Music in The Cotswolds

24th July to 2nd August 2015

For well over 40 years the Guiting Music Festival has been a highlight of the Cotswolds summer calendar, bringing an exciting variety of highly talented performances of Classical, Jazz and Folk music by artists from around the world. It has built up a strong band of very loyal regular supporters.

The Festival is a registered charity run entirely by volunteers, with tremendous support coming from our loyal band of long-standing Sponsors, Donors and Patrons, all of which results in the lowest possible ticket prices for some of today's best performers.
