What's going on

The churches taking part in our Festival are arranging all sorts of different activities - these will range from traditional favourites such as Flower Festivals and Cream Teas to a whole range of different Concerts, Poetry Readings, Discussion Groups, Lectures , and Presentations. All of the events are aimed at showing how the church is not just a building, but a living community that welcomes believers of all faiths, denominations and none.
In many cases for most of our towns and villages the church has been about the only 'constant' throughout the centuries as communities have developed, grown and changed around them. This means that the churches have become a fascinating repository of historical records and shared experiences. Many churches will be opening up their church records and registers which will be available to historians and those people interested in tracing their families back through the generations. However, the focus of the Festival is not looking backwards, but looking forwards to show what churches are doing now as they re-position themselves afresh as a central pillar of community life for the 21st Century.

How to find out What's going On, where and when.

The map below is designed to help you find out what each individual church is doing to mark the Cotswold Churches Festival. By clicking on to the individual church markers, you can see what events and activities are taking place. Where there is a tick in the green circle next to the general description, eg Flower Festival, then by clicking on the description name, this will expand to show you the exact dates and times when the church will be staging the event. In the case of Concerts and other performances, some of these events may require you to register for or book tickets. Where tickets are required, when you expand the description, this will show you links to the event organiser's website where you can request tickets.
In addition to enabling you to discover what individual churches are doing during the Festival, if you have a particular interest, for example, in Flower Festivals or Historical Exhibitions, you can use the search options above the map to find out what different churches are doing. You can either enter a specific date, and this will then show you everything that is taking place on that particular day. Alternatively, you can use the drop-down menu to find your favourite theme, and this will show you all the churches staging that particular event type. As a useful facility, you will also be able to see the best route on the map between the different churches.
