Guiting Power Music Festival The 48th Guiting Music Festival
20 July to 29 July 2018

For nearly half a century the Guiting Music Festival has been a delightful niche festival to enliven the Cotswolds’ summer calendar, bringing an exciting variety of highly talented performances of Classical, Jazz and Blues music by artists from around the world. In that time it has built up a strong band of very loyal supporters.

The festival is held in the beautiful and unspoilt Cotswold setting of Guiting Power, near Stow-on-the-Wold in Gloucestershire’s Cotswold Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The Guiting Music Festival is a registered charity run entirely by volunteers, with tremendous support coming from our loyal band of long-standing Sponsors, Donors and Patrons. We always strive to keep ticket prices as low as possible.

Hear The Music Play  Who do you trust, really?

Hi! I’m Penni. I’ve been obsessed with playing and teaching music since I was 10 years old. I’ve had hundreds of students over the years who have at some point asked for my advice on what to buy to support their learning.

When you buy certain products from some of the sites which we link to, Hear the Music Play receives a commission that supports our work. Here is an explanation of what we do and how to support our work.

We are also a new community of musicians discussing the instruments and gear that will help you “hear the music play.”
