Street artists from around the world are gathering for the much-loved Cheltenham Paint Festival, creating large-scale public artworks at sites across town this summer.

Spectators can see the colourful works in progress on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 July 2024, following the free, five-mile arts trail around Cheltenham.

To help them along their way, Cheltenham Paint Festival offers an audio guide, with information on past and upcoming murals and the all-important details of where to find them, hosted on the app Guide.AI

Key locations like the Honeybourne Line tunnels, Pittville Park skate park and North Place car park are repainted with fresh artwork every year.

Headline artists are travelling from far and wide to showcase their talent at the people's paint festival, including Belgian muralist, Jolien De Waele; Mexican-based French mural artist, Margay Art; and local artist WolfSkullJack, whose portfolio includes the likes of Metallica and The Smashing Pumpkins — to name just a few!
