The festival takes place every year during the first weekend of July across the historic city of Winchester.

There’s something for everyone to enjoy at each year’s festival, and best of all, it’s absolutely FREE!

– Two jam-packed dates of arts and culture all around Winchester city centre.

– All-day family picnic at North Walls Recreation Ground, with some of the world’s most spectacular street performers.
