The Brewery Quarter’s Summer Jam Festival is back in Cheltenham for an extended three-day celebration of the best of Gloucestershire’s home-grown musical talent, alongside tasty food and drink on Friday 2 to Sunday 4 August 2019.
The event’s main stage will be jam-packed with the county’s best live party bands, DJs and solo performers, while the Brewery Quarter itself will be crammed with alfresco bars, appetising street food and an arts and crafts market.
This free event is certain to create a real summer buzz around Cheltenham town centre, making it the ideal day out for families, foodies and music fans.
SoGlos has rounded up its highlights below, with more information available by visiting thebreweryquarter.co.uk directly.
Bars and restaurants in The Brewery Quarter will be coming out to play, with a range of outdoor bars full to the brim of beers, cocktails, wine and soft drinks, whilst alfresco dining for restaurant guests is encouraged to get into the festival atmosphere.
As well as alfresco bars, The Brewery Quarter’s bars and restaurant will also be setting up street food stalls during the three days, offering plenty of great choice during the festivities.
From Mexican and pizzas through to cocktails and real ales, Cheltenham visitors can enjoy delicious treats from eateries such as Cosy Club, Nando’s, Brewhouse & Kitchen, Prezzo and Chiquito.
The Summer Jam Festival kicks off at 5pm on Friday with popular local songstress Camilla Lewington. After this, enjoy smooth pop, jazz and soul vocals courtesy of Ben Cipolla and the Nouvelle House Band, and finally local hip hop heroes JPDL and Yogi Beats close the night with electronic and funk tunes.
Saturday promises a wealth of music acts, including newcomer and bold vocalist Savannah Lee Caprice. The disco-funk soul band Soular returns from the Summer Jam 2018 to get the party started; Whailtail from Bristol will ensure you get your groove on; and pop cover group Just Shut Up and Dance starring Camilla Lewington is also back from last year’s Jam.
Also performing are last year’s special guest and 2017 winner of Britain’s Got Reggae competition, Rafeelya and the New Life Band, delivering a Caribbean vibe with their reggae melodies.
On Sunday 4 August Salsa Del Sol will be playing their brand of South American music with a Latino twist; and award-winning party band Tux Fizz return for the fourth year running and will make sure that visitors are dancing in the streets!
If you’re after something more intimate and low-key, supporting acts will be performing in venues including The Botanist, Brewhouse and Kitchen, Cosy Club and Babel throughout the weekend.
If you’re not satisfied with the abundance of food, drink and music on offer, there will be tons of activities taking place across the Summer Jam weekend, including competitions and demonstrations.
What’s more, there will be an arts and crafts market running all day from Friday through to Sunday to add to the festival vibe. Stall holders will provide quality hand-made items, homeware, clothing and local produce. Great gifts ranging from handmade jewellery and soaps to henna tattoo art and wooden garden ornaments will be on offer from local traders, so be sure to snap them up fast!
