Popular family-friendly festival, Fantasy Forest, is returning to Sudeley Castle this July 2022.

Weekend camping tickets have already sold out but there’s still a chance to grab a pass to the hottest fantasy festival in the UK, taking place in Gloucestershire this summer.

On Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 July 2022, the grounds of Sudeley Castle will be transformed into a paradise for fantasy fans, with the sounds of storytellers and live music filling the air alongside dramatic sights of lightsaber battles and sci-fi re-enactments.

The highlight of this year’s festival takes place on Sunday 17 July 2022 when the highly-acclaimed 65-piece Film Orchestra will perform a live, two hour, al fresco concert.

Performing favourites from fantasy films, TV shows and games, such as Star Wars, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, World of Warcraft and Dr Who, there’s something for every fantasy fan to enjoy.

Martin Pelgrim from Fantasy Forest Festival, said: ‘2021 Fantasy Forest Festival was the most successful to date. People seemed to enjoy the opportunity of escapism that Fantasy Forest Festival provides – offering a chance to relax and enjoy a weekend of entertainment and experience something a little different.’

Day tickets cost from £18.95 for adults and £9.99 for children, with weekend tickets costing £39.95 for adults and £19.95 for children.

The whole family is welcome, with children under seven able to attend for free – and dogs are allowed in most areas, providing they remain on a lead and owners clean up after them.
