Top of the Gorge Festival, Cheddar


On the weekend of 22-24 June 2018, the inaugural Top of the Gorge festival will take place on a spectacular site overlooking Cheddar Gorge.

Welcoming campers and day visitors alike, this event is a carnival of outdoor adventure, entertainment, inspiration and fantastic local food and drink.
The pop-up campsite looks right through the jaws of the gorge towards the Somerset coast, and activities include trail running, mountain biking, climbing, caving, walking, archery, food foraging, campfire cooking, star gazing and much more. 
There will be live music across the three days. Bands range from local folk duo the Drystones to Bristol-based ska/funk 7-piece Crinkle Cuts. Speakers include Dave Cornthwaite and Anna McNuff.

Cheddar Gorge is one of England's most iconic and spectacular landscapes. We are really proud to own the north side of this spectacular gorge and we hope that you will enjoy exploring it in a way that suits you.
