WYCHWOOD FESTIVAL JUNE 3–5 is at Cheltenham Racecourse
What’s the vibe Nominated Best Family Festival for every year since its launch, this is a leading boutique family festival with the emphasis on music and fun.
Musical interludes A strong line-up includes The Charlatans, Robyn Hitchcock, Ian Anderson, Cornershop, The Waterboys, and, er, The Wurzels.
For the kids CBeebies favourite and seasoned festivaller Justin Fletcher will be performing, alongside all manner of workshops and activities, music, dance and arts and crafts sessions, plus circus and performance skills. The Roald Dahl Museum will also be providing activities.
Added extras Try out the Headphone Disco from 11pm–3am in the Big Top while your babies snooze in the quiet background, giggle at the Comedy Club, or chill out in the Healing Gardens with reflexology, holistic palmistry and reiki.
Where to stay There’s a family camping area on-site, or try the tipis and yurts. We love the sound of the SoulPad Village, where you can rent a SoulPad sleeping up to five for £219.
What does it cost Adult weekend tickets £115 plus £20 camping; 10–15 years £55; 5–9 years, £15; under-fives are free. Day tickets also available.
Extend your stay The charming Regency town of Cheltenham Spa is home to the new Montpellier Chapter hotel, where children can stay free when sharing their parents’ Deluxe Room with breakfast from £159. Further afield in the Cotswolds, Calcot Manor is the perfect surroundings for R&R. B&B for a family of four is priced at £375.
