Introducing The Cheltenham Balloon Fiesta

Showtime Events Group are delighted to bring The Cheltenham Balloon Fiesta to the racecourse this year on the 22nd and 23rd of June. The plans are already in motion and the team are busy organising a fun-filled weekend for all the family.

As the name suggests ,there will be plenty of Hot Air Balloons to amaze you (the final number will be confirmed closer to the festival). You can see them up close and personal and watch the pilots at work. It is an amazing sight to behold, although a lot of patience is required for balloon flights and tethering as the weather conditions need to be just right. But summer is one of the best times- not just because it is warmer!

Throughout Saturday and Sunday there will be live arena entertainment from:

Jamie Squibb
Jamie Squibb and his team of riders who perform breath-taking motor stunts mid-air!

The Knights of Nottingham
An exciting medieval jousting show!

Stannage Stunts
A family of daredevils hold a World Record and perform some of the most dangerous and spectacular stunts you’ve ever seen!

Vander Wheel of Death

The Vander Wheel of Death is a 9 meter steel structure that revolves around a central axis with a open-sided steel cage on each end. It stands at 50ft at its highest point and the fearless Team run, jump, skip, juggle and go blind-folded during their stunt display.  An adrenalin fuelled act that will leave your hearts in your mouth throughout.

Circus Workshop
Join Scotty’s Circus Workshop, for adults and children alike. Learn circus skills such as plate spinning, diabolos, stilt walking, fun wheels and juggling!

Birds of Prey & Reptiles
get up close and personal with some amazing animals, learn all about them and even hold them if you dare!

And More!

More acts are yet to be confirmed, if you’re interested in performing or trading then email: cheltenhamballoonfiesta@gmail.com

On Saturday night, there will be the famous Hot Air Balloon Glow (weather permitting) and a fantastic firework display!

If that wasn’t enough, there is a giant funfair with rides of all sizes for every kind of thrill seeker!

This is a weekend you really don’t want to miss. You can pre-book your tickets on skiddle for the best deal!
