artBEAT is the opening 3 day weekend for the festival showcasing the work of some of Britain’s top artists, designers and artisans in the marquee on the village green in our idyllic Cotswold village.

Throughout the weekend the marquee houses talented artists, printmakers, sculptors, jewellers, ceramicists, designer-makers and a host of traditional artisans demonstrating their skills & selling their work direct to the public.

Entry to the exhibitor marquee is free to the public. There’s live music on the Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

artBEAT will be going ahead over the first weekend of the festival from Friday June 4th to Sunday June 6th, so save the date!

Those that had a stand booked in 2020 are being offered stands first with no need to go through the application process again (look out for an email coming your way from us!).

If you would like to be invited to apply for a stand at artBEAT from June 4-6 2021, please email Kate at

Covid Measures
We will be doing everything to keep our artists, general public and staff safe in June.
There will be a one way system in place, limited numbers in the marquee at any one time and effective (but friendly) marshals making sure there is no crowding of stands or bottlenecks.
We also stipulate mask-wearing in the marquee and may well use our an infra-red thermometer to check people’s temperature before they enter, as an extra precaution.
