The longest running Cajun and Zydeco Festival in Europe is returning to Gloucester Guildhall for its milestone 30th year from Friday 27 to Sunday 29 January 2024.

Promising an all-day party atmosphere, the festival is sure to heat things up this winter, bringing Louisiana vibes and some of the best Cajun and Creole musicians to the city.

As well as live music, there's also dance and instrument workshops, energetic sets from Swamp Rock DJs, special talks and performances — including a live podcast in the Guildhall Cinema with the Jim's Lounge takeover — plus authentic Cajun and Creole food to tuck into.
