Stroll down Lechlade High Street and you’re bound to hear someone talking about the music festival which is taking place here in just over a week’s time. There’s a real buzz around the picturesque Cotswold market town as it gears up for the biggest event in its social calendar.
The Zapp Active Team
The Zapp Active team are super excited about the three-day Bank Holiday weekender - not only because it’s taking place across the river from our HQ and we love music - but because we’re going to be bringing you live updates, live streaming, backstage footage and lots more from the event which runs 24th-26th May at The Riverside Park.
For 2019, noughties favourites The Feeling will be taking to the main stage on the Sunday night performing hits like ‘Fill My Little World’, ‘Love It When You Call’, ‘Sewn’ and ‘Never Be Lonely’. If you prefer a bit of Bob Marley, you’re in luck as The Marley Experience will be headlining on the Friday night following the Faux Fighters and a Madonna tribute act.
If power ballads are your thing, make sure you catch That 80s Rock Show - a six-piece band who’re set to wow the crowd with rock anthems and classic songs from the decade that fashion forgot. With over 100 bands and performers across the three days, there’s something to suit all musical tastes, not to mention a whole host of hilarious comedians each night to tickle your ribs.
And there’s more – the insanely popular Missy Malone and Friends Burlesque Revue is back. The show features titillating burlesque performances, comedy routines, cabaret and music. While Lechlade Festival is fantastically child-friendly, we wouldn’t recommend this act for the kids! However, if you’re looking for things to entertain your little ones, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Activities and Fun
They’ll be able to have a go at some circus skills, have a dance in the disco dome, enjoy fairground rides and inflatables and have fun in the kids’ play tent - and the best thing is, children under 16 are completely free - and that includes camping! There’ll be plenty of delicious food available too – get your mouth around some Cornish Pasties, Chinese noodles, Fish and Chips from The Cotswold Chippy (the best fish and chips around in our opinion!) pizzas, wraps, burritos and coffee from Lechlade’s very own Lynwood & Co. You can wash it all down with a selection of real ales, cider, wine and more.
There are still tickets available but they’re going fast - make sure you take advantage of the early bird discounts which run until May 23rd. The long-range forecast .
We love where we live and can’t wait for Lechlade Music Festival.
