The 2022 Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts

Our 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.  Now, in order to restore our finances, we have launched a JustGiving fundraising page.  Do give generously – here’s the link.


Anyone interested in becoming involved with running the Festival is most welcome to contact us.  Do make contact if you feel that you would like to join our team.  It’s so worthwhile – we do make a difference to the young people who perform.

If you would like to know more about helping to run the Festival, contact Brian Harding (Hon Secretary) by email: brianharding17@btinternet.com, or call 07850 153183.
