The Cotswolds is a hugely popular area when it comes to tourism, with millions of visitors flocking to the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty every year.

A big part of that attraction is the amount of great events that go on in the area, and we’ve put together a guide of some of the best to look out for in 2020.

When it comes to festivals, the Cotswolds has some of the best.

The Chipping Campden Literature Festival returns in May following their 10th anniversary in 2019. In March, BibLit will be welcoming authors to Bibury to discuss ‘Our Special Relationship with the US’ in a weekend-long festival.

In February, The Cotswolds Winter Cider Festival comes to the Bingham Hall in Cirencester, and in July the The Cotswold Show and Food Festival returns to Cirencester Park.

Forest Live has become one of the most popular annual events in the area, and this year will feature four acts every evening from Thursday 11th to Sunday 14th June.

James Morrison and Will Young will be performing together on the Friday at Westonbirt Arboretum, whilst Keane have been announced as the Sunday night band.

Elsewhere the Guiting Music Festival is set for its 50th anniversary in the summer, and the free-to-enter Phoenix Festival returns at the end of August.

The Barn Theatre’s first production of the year will be Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’, running from Thursday 23rd January to Saturday 15th February.

The Sundial Theatre has an array of shows on offer throughout the year, including comedians Andy Parsons, Seann Walsh and Mark Steel, as well as music from The People’s String Foundation in April.

And in Tetbury the Goods Shed will feature ‘A Comedy of Errors’ from popular theatre group The Handlebards, in addition to regular art exhibitions and concerts.
