Music, dance and drama enthusiasts alike, get ready to jiggle your jazz hands and stomp your feet as Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts makes its return to town this spring.

The saying there’s no business like show business certainly rings true for Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts, which returns to town from Tuesday 8 to Sunday 20 May 2018.

The event has not only become Cheltenham’s oldest festival but also the largest community arts festival in the south west, attracting hundreds of choirs and dance groups who showcase their talents.

Cheltenham Town Hall and other venues across town will play host to more than 300 classes and competitions, with The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes and Birmingham Royal Ballet dancer Laura Day having competed in years gone by.

Whether you’re an aspiring singer, dancer or actor yourself or just fancy catching some top-class talent, don’t miss the delights of one of the county’s – indeed the country’s – most anticipated performing arts festivals.
