cheltenham festivalsCheltenham Festivals is a registered charity that organises four festivals every year in the spa town of Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England: the Jazz, Science, Music and Literature.

Allie Esiri's Poetry Corner presents poetry's top twenty greatest hits. It is an event aimed at fun and conceived for families.

Actors Julian Ovenden (Downton Abbey, Finding Neverland) and Nathaniel Parker plus other guest stars will perform highlights from A. A. Milne to Spike Milligan to Roger McGough. It starts at The Sunday Times Garden Theatre (Imperial Gardens Festival site in Cheltenham, adjoining the Town Hall) on Sunday October 12, 2014 from 10:00am - 11:00am. Tickets can be obtained online and cost 7 GBP. More info on how to get there and everything else you need to know can be found over at Cheltemham Festivals' website

For those who are planning a trip to Cheltenham for this occasion, here's another hint. Hilary Mantel will be presenting her latest work "The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher" that evening. More guests will be there on Sunday - take for instance Dame Judi Dench and Mark Haddon.

Cheltenham Festivals host hundreds of events across 12 months. It also runs an education programme, with events linked to each festival. With the aim of involving the local community, such events range from family activity days to performances out and about in the local area. There is a commitment to produce festivals with 'attitude', 'bite' and 'edge', creating programmes that give audiences the opportunity to discover and participate in new and interesting work.
