Bringing a brilliant line up of classical, jazz and blues music to the Cotswolds, Guiting Music Festival is back with a jam-packed programme for 2022.

Taking place from Friday 22 July to Sunday 31 July 2022, there will be 10 live performances across 10 days with a series of open-air concerts in the picturesque village of Guiting Power, near Stow-on-the-Wold.

Performances at Guiting Music Festival

With another brilliant line up for 2022, classical, jazz and blues fans can look forward to a programme of talented performers including Stacey Kent, Kathryn Tickell Trio, The Scott Brothers, The Galliard Ensemble, Zoe Rahman quintet and much more.

The festival will feature evening concerts and two Sunday open-air afternoon concerts, with the whole event aiming ‘to provide high quality music to as wide an audience as possible at an affordable cost’.

Charity concert for the UNHCR at Guiting Music Festival

During the 10-day long festivities, a special concert raising money for the Ukraine Humanitarian Relief will take place with conductor Tom Fetherstonhaugh and the Fantasia Orchestra, on Wednesday 27 July 2022.

The 10-member chamber orchestra will perform alongside concerto soloist Alena Baeva in fundraising for UNHCR (the UN refugee agency). What’s more, Alena is generously waiving her fee for the performance to boost the funds raised to help the cause.

Hospitality at Guiting Music Festival

Alongside the unmissable entertainment, there will be wine, beer and soft drinks available from the marquee bar, plus hot food on sale during outdoor Sunday concerts – with festivalgoers also welcome to bring their own picnics.

Post-concert suppers will be on offer in the garden room of The Old Vicarage, close to the Guiting Power Village Hall. The suppers include a main course, pudding and wine, all for £25. The festival has a dog-friendly policy.

Tickets are now on sale.
