On Saturday 6 July 2024, Elkstone Studios in the Cotswolds is hosting its first summer festival, all to raise vital funds for Parkinsons UK.

Kicking off at 3pm and going on until late, Elkstone, alongside its festival partner, estate agency Savills, is hosting family-friendly games, live music, food — including an Argentinian Asado-style food stall — a bar and fun padel taster sessions throughout the day. 

The staff from Savills are even challenging themselves to an epic 12-hour fundraising padel tournament on the day, alongside friendly demos by professional padel players, who will be showcasing their skills on Elkstone's courts.

Tom Waltham, head of Savills in Cirencester, said: ‘We are excited to be bringing a new summer event to the Cotswolds this July. It will be a chance for families and friends to get together and enjoy a mix of food, games and live music, at the fantastic Elkstone Studios.

‘It is also a chance to delve into the world of padel, with the professionals not only showing what they can do on the court, but also offering taster sessions for those interested in giving it a go. My colleagues and I will be having a go ourselves as part of a charity tournament.’

Dogs are very welcome to the festival and on-site parking is available.
