The weekend is fast approaching and for those still deciding how to spend their Friday through to Sunday, we pick 5 of the best ways to spend your weekend in the Cotswolds

1. Gloucester Folk Trail

Folk musicians from around the county are to congregate in Gloucester for the second Gloucester Folk Trail. Taking place on February 22-24, venues across the city will host traditional and contemporary folk acts for a weekend of free live performances. This event will also include poetry, talks, Morris dancing and traditional craft.

2. Light Up Cheltenham

Are you yet to enjoy the views of Cheltenham from the 35 metre observation wheel in Imperial Gardens? Be quick - you have up until Sunday, February 24 to have a go and admire the town’s architecture illuminated with colour from the sky.

3. The Cotswolds Art & Antiques Dealers’ Association Fair, Blenheim Palace

The very best of each discipline is represented at the Cotswolds Art & Antiques Dealers’ Association Fair, including furniture, pictures, silver, early needlework and antique boxes, sculpture, bronze, clocks and barometers, carpets and textiles, glass, jewellery, English and Oriental ceramics, antiquarian and rare books, garden ornaments and statuary, as well as other decorative items. The fair will take place from February 21-24 at Blenheim Palace.

4. Luke Jermay: Intuition, Chipping Norton Theatre

Intuition is a strange thing and Luke Jermay is even stranger. Building on his acclaimed debut show ‘Sixth Sense’, entertainer Luke Jermay is back and better than ever with a brand new interactive stage show jam packed with phenomenal jaw dropping demonstrations of intuition, telepathy and prediction; your mind will be read, your choices will be predicted and your future will be revealed. Catch at the show at Chipping Norton Theatre on Saturday, February 23.

5. See the snowdrops at Waterperry Gardens, near Wheatley

On February 23 and 24, there will be free guided tours to see over 60 wonderful snowdrop varieties blanketing the ornamental gardens of Waterperry Gardens.
