This is the second time we’ve ventured to the Cheltenham Jazz Festival and we loved it this time too. It has such a lovely atmosphere and so much yummy smelling food. I thought I’d just share a few photos from our visit this year….
Of course there are a few bars too. I loved this huge tent with bunting!
This is the main area: it has picnic benches, and loads of room for picnic blankets too. There is a lovely atmosphere, music drifting from the tents as well as chatting, laughing…. Something every mummy looks for: and lots of buggys, so you know it really is family friendly!
I really recommend a visit if you’re in the area. Both Cheltenham and the festival site itself are really good for families. There are even family and children events at the Jazz Festival and a play park in the Montpellier Gardens, where the festival is located. Mummy and daddy are also well catered for as there is so many food and drink tents, and even a coffee tent. In saying that, Montpellier Gardens has a Garden Cafe which is a permanent building with loads of outdoor seating and plenty of space for picnics, conveniently situated right beside the play park. It has lots of high chairs too #mummywin!
The Cheltenham Festival is on this year from 27th April until 2nd May. There are lots of amazing performances you can pay for, including Jamie Cullum (wish we had a babysitter!), but, there is also lots for free. There is free music in the ‘Montpellier Woods’ area which has picnic benches and loads of space, as well as on the Free Stage (located in the main area next to the coffee tent.
I definitely, 100% recommend a visit to Cheltenham and the Jazz Festival.
