Away from the bright lights of hosting well-loved TV programmes Countryfile, The One Show, Blue Peter and more, Matt Baker (A Year On Our Farm) is happiest at home. He talks to Tim Hubbard about the seasonal cycle of life on his country farm and offers a glimpse into family life, as well as sharing behind-the-scenes anecdotes from his TV career. Following the huge success of his More4 series Our Farm in the Dales, which saw him move the family to his childhood farm in the Durham hills to help support his parents, Matt reveals how the countryside has made him who he is.

A Year on Our Farm: How the Countryside Made Me


Cheltenham Town Hall, Baillie Gifford Stage

The Town Hall, situated on Imperial Gardens in the centre of Cheltenham comprises of a Grand Main Hall, distinguished by its Corinthian styles columns and coved ceiling. The Main Hall is accompanied by dining and drawing rooms, as well as the Pillar Room bar.

The venue’s early 20th century Edwardian elegance makes it the classic ‘shoebox’ concert hall. With a seating capacity of 900, the Town Hall is perfectly suited to grand symphony orchestra performances with a thrilling impact.

There is no tiered seating at this venue for any of our Festivals.
