One of the greatest features of this much loved event is that there’s something for guests of all ages, from archery and artisan cuisine to the authentic medieval market (complete with a live band of musicians).

Evesham Angling Festival and Craft Fair – 26th – 28th August

If you love a spot of angling and fishing, the Evesham Angling Festival and Craft Fair is no doubt the place to be! Hosted at Crown Meadow on Abbey Road, the fair offers a little of everything, helping make it an incredibly popular destination each year.

Plus, the Angling Festival itself is often pushed as the largest outdoor coarse fishing event in the UK, making it even more popular among those wanting to try their hand at a spot of fame or glory.

Entry to the Evesham Angling Festival is free, although on-site parking is a premium extra. Still, at just £7 per car, it’s hard to deny that this is still amazing value for money.

SS Suevic – A Tale of Shipwreck and Survival – 13th October

The splendid Holland House is set to host a historic and intriguing event this Autumn, diving deep into the history and amazing story of the SS Suevic. A series of ill-fated incidents saw her run aground in 1907 in the midst of a Cornish storm; amazingly, the RNLI were able to save 456 people in as little as 16 hours, with not a single life lost to the event. Truly a remarkable achievement that’s well worth celebrating to this day.

The event includes a 2-course lunch and talk, as well as allowing guests the opportunity to explore the house and gardens. Tickets are priced at £20 per head – not bad at all, considering food and drinks are on offer.

Ed Byrne: Tragedy Plus Time – 12th October

As someone who’s got something of a reputation for top-quality acts, there’s no doubt that Ed Byrne’s upcoming Tragedy Plus Time tour performance is set to be a big hit. Coming to Evesham at The Regal on the 12th of October, Ed’s delving deep into one of the most harrowing stories in his life – but don’t worry, because it’s guaranteed still to be packed with laughs and hilarity.

Mrs Churchill – My Life with Winston – 18th November

We all know the story of Winston Churchill (to varying degrees, of course). However, few people would have ever known him better than his wife of more than half a century, Clementine Churchill.

With this in mind, the tale of Mrs Churchill – My Life with Winston, as portrayed by Liz Grand, is no doubt a moving and powerful rendition that provides a deeper insight into the lives of these very high-profile figures.

At just £12 (including nibbles, wine, and soft drinks), this performance is one that no WWII lover will want to miss.
