The Nailsworth Festival

The Nailsworth Festival aims, for one week of the year, to bring something a little different to the cultural life of our community, providing something for everyone. The 2024 festival ran from Saturday 18th May until Saturday 25th May.

The 2024 festival is now over – we hope there was something for everyone to enjoy. A big ‘thank you’ to our audiences and those who supported us in other ways. We will be back again in the second half of May 2025.

Some photos from Festival Saturday are in our Gallery page, where there are also images of the Acoustic and Roots evening and the performance by Moscow Drug Club. Photos from earlier Festival Saturdays are also still available there.

Our general email address is [email protected]. We always welcome suggestions for future festival events and we would love to hear from anyone who would like to be involved with helping to run the festival. You can also support us by becoming a Friend of the Nailsworth Festival.
