From hands-on family concerts, to world premieres by the world’s finest performers – Cheltenham Music Festival promises 12 days of sublime and surprising musical adventures for all ages.

Music for Schools

We introduce music to hundreds of pupils with our Music for Schools programmes with the aim to engage a whole new generation with the power of music.
