Cheltenham Paint Festival returns in September 2020 for two days of incredible street art and graffiti across town.

Around 80 street artists from around the world are gathering for Cheltenham Paint Festival this autumn, painting at sites across town on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 September 2020.

Headliners this year include Jody, Snik, Lucas Antics, Dotmasters, Trust Icon, Dank, Inkie and more. And you can watch the street artists at work, from the first brushstroke to the finished piece, at locations across Cheltenham from 9am to 5.30pm on both days.

While the exact details have not yet been released, locations are expected to include the likes of the Honeybourne Line bridges and tunnels and Northplace car park.

New for 2020, there will be a fun treasure hunt inspired by Geocaching, with ten camera film cases hidden around the artworks and prizes for the fastest who find all ten. Clues will be released on Saturday 5 September 2020.

Organiser, Andy Dice Davies, said: ‘We’re delighted to be able to run this year’s festival which has been possible through funding from Cheltenham Borough Council, Cheltenham Borough Homes and The WCD Group. With an incredible line up of artists and a host of different locations across the town, we’re certain the festival is going to be a great one.’

‘This year, in particular, is really important for the artists as many have found much of their work cancelled over the last few months. Cheltenham Paint Festival not only offers the public an amazing opportunity to watch these fantastic pieces of street art being created but also supports the artists involved. We can’t wait to welcome the artists and public back to this brilliant event.’

The Cheltenham Paint Festival map will be available online only and social distancing rules will be followed. For more information visit cheltenhampaintfestival.co.uk.
