The Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts has taken place in Cheltenham for over 90 years. However, our future is never particularly secure.

The 2021 Festival was staged during the pandemic and we were limited to solo performances and small audiences.  Unsurprisingly, we recorded a significant financial loss.  Nonetheless, it was hugely worthwhile and greatly appreciated by all the performers.  This year we are looking forward to staging a full range of classes and categories, including choirs, dance groups, duets and trios, etc.

The entry fees we charge provides just over 40% of the funds we need for each Festival. So, we therefore need to raise funds by many other means.

Your donation could help us to:

  • Reach more schools to invite their children to the Festival
  • Advertise the Festival to attract more spectators
  • Produce a comprehensive programme of classes
  • Ensure the Festival continues to be held at the Town Hall
