Frocester Festival... Music, Drinks, Food, Cricket, Fun! 

The perfect 'Festival in a Day' – Saturday 26th August 2023 

Welcome to Frocester Festival! 

We used to be known as Frocester Beer Festival, but after all the disruption caused by Covid over the last 2 years, we have 're-imagined' our festival to make it a bit more focused and varied. 
 
We are also now packing everything into one day – Saturday 26th August 2023, from 11am to 11pm – and we've added some fabulous family entertainment during the day, with a game of cricket being played right in front of the pavilion for everyone to enjoy, alongside the usual excellent live music and wide choice of beer, cider, wine, spirits, food and other entertainment that we're renowned for. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

We've been going for more than 40 years! 

Frocester Festival is proud to be one of the area’s most recognised beer and music festivals, and we often attracted over 3,000 visitors annually, from near and far. 
 
Established in 1979, the festival is organised and run solely by volunteers and friends from Frocester Cricket Club. Funds raised are used by the club for a diverse range of projects which benefit members in so many ways, so thank you for your continued support. 
 
We welcome you to enjoy great beer, cider, wine, fizz and spirits, together with fantastic food and a diverse and high quality range of live music. 
As usual, we’ll have a super music line up with brilliant headliners on Saturday night who will really get you singing along! Plus all our live music acts are local again – so come along and support your local musicians. You’ll be really impressed! 
 
As always, we’ll be offering a huge range of different beers and ciders. In addition, back by popular demand, we’ve also got our Pimms and Prosecco bars again, as well as a Gin Bar, so you definitely won't go thirsty! 
To complement all these lovely drinks, we’ve also got our usual choice of fantastic food, including pizzas, thai curries, burgers and all day breakfast baps. 
 
For families, we’ve got a soft play area, balloon modelling, bubbles and lots more for the kids (plus some fun stuff for adult visitors too!), soft drinks and snacks. Note: It's also FREE admission for all Under 18s! However, please note that Under 18s will only be admitted when accompanied by an adult.
