The Daffodil

The Daffodil

Find glamorous lighting, Art Deco features, Hollywood-esque props and a sweeping staircase at The Daffodil. This hidden gem, tucked inside a beautiful 1920’s cinema, is situated in the heart of Cheltenham and the new venue for our most delicious Festival strand.

Dishing up a programme of scrumptious events, indulge in conversations with bestselling authors, top chefs, big thinkers and even British royalty.

Join us on culinary adventures from around the globe: explore the tastes of Japan with Scott Hallsworth, take a round-trip of Pakistan with Sumayya Usmani, enjoy Spanish tapas with Jose Pizarro and travel to Nigeria with Hibiscus author Lopè Ariyo.

Have lunch with the likes of Kirstie Allsopp, Miles Jupp or Henry Blofeld, come for afternoon tea with HRH Princess Michael of Kent or have dinner with Thomasina Miers.

Victoria Moore will bring her unfailing wine guide, and you can find out which cocktail joints to seek out in our culinary travel guide for drinks with Joel Harrison and Neil Ridley.

In our new Brexit Breakfast series you will stay on top of current affairs and find out more about the winners and the losers of Brexit, what Europe wants and whether it’s a boomtime for business.

And don’t miss the fun that is Robert Campton’s legendary quiz night – a returning Festival favourite!

Whether foodie, philosopher, political expert or experience seeker – there’s something for everyone at The Daffodil this October!
