Who's invited


You, your family, your dog and friends! This is a community festival open to all and especially welcomes well behaved adults, kids and dogs. The variety of live music will keep you all entertained and the children's activities will keep the younger ones happy. Enjoy!


There's always time for some festival shopping from stalls with unusual crafts and gifts to fun fancy dress, toys, jewellery and lots more!


The Phoenix Festival is an amazing outdoor event produced by the community for the community.

It is totally free-to-enter and costs nothing to come along and enjoy this annual festival that offers two days of music, dance and family fun in the beautiful, historic Abbey Grounds right in the heart of Cirencester.


“Fantastic festival, all the family had so much fun! Can't wait till next year"
