Festival in 2018
Our fourteenth Festival was as popular as ever. Our special guest Kate Clark, BBC Radio Gloucestershire Presenter switched on the lights with help from her family. We were lucky to have Baily's Beards playing to us during the switch on event. The Festival ended with the Christmas Tree Festival Songs of Praise.

Because we were celebrating the 150th anniversary of the “new church” Cotswold Players performed a production of the stage play "It's A Wonderful Life" during three evenings of the Festival to a packed out audience. It was really the highlight of the week!
