About Fantasy Forest

Enter a wonderful and magical realm

Guarded by the old Guardian Tree, a gate to another realm can be found at Sudeley Castle. A world, much like our own but filled with magic. Once a year, the tree will wake from it’s slumber and open the gates to humanity, to keep the balance of both worlds.



Be who you want to be!

Immerse yourself in another world. Dress up in your favorite costume and join us at the beautiful Sudeley Castle & Gardens, which allow for fantastic photo opportunities. Fill your day with asthonishing fantasy related shows and entertainment, dance to music of live bands, listen to interesting lectures, get busy in a variety of workshops, browse over 70 traders or show your amazing costume in the Costume Competition. And if you’re quick enough to reserve one of the limited campsite spots, you get the unique chance to sit at a campfire next to this historic castle.

The festival is for everyone of all ages and does not cater to a specific genre, unlike most festivals and conventions in the UK. From babies to great grandparents, knights to Daleks, Gryffindors to Slytherins, Kratos to Ezio, Pickachus to T-rexes, Storm Troopers to cavemen, everyone is welcome.

Join us July 18th & 19th 2020 At Sudeley Castle, Cheltenham

Without its hard working volunteers, the realm of Fantasy Forest could not exists. This is why our crew is well taken care off with free food, a private camping with a cozy campfire and plenty of time to enjoy the festival if wished. You are not required to buy a ticket.
