This year’s Painswick Feast event will include an exciting array of stalls – representing our local food producers, our creators of crafts and art, and our businesses, clubs, charities and societies. All this happens in St Mary’s Churchyard.

As a visitor to the Feast, you’ll have great browsing and shopping opportunities. You’ll be able to buy all kinds of fantastic local products and produce. You can discover more about all the great things going on in our community – and maybe you’ll be inspired to find a new group or activity to join!

Building on the enthusiasm and success of last year, the 2015 Feast will reflect the whole Painswick community.

Painswick is famous for food. Which is why our biggest event is the Feast!

Whether you are looking for a top-notch banquet or a light snack, you can find in Painswick exactly the place you need. All our restaurants and eateries are represented in the Feast and in the stalls.

There is also a great range of local food producers to find out about: succulent local lamb and beef, free range eggs, fine fruit and vegetables – you name it! And of course the Apple Pressing event through the day is a great celebration of our famous local apple orchards and gardens.



Our pretty Painswick gardens are almost as well known as our historic houses. There will be a gardening marquee, where you can meet fellow gardening enthusiasts, buy plants of all kinds – and soon you’ll be able to make your own garden even more of a delight for yourself and for everyone.



Painswick enjoys a vibrant wellbeing sector. This comes in many forms. You can find quality personal training for yourself, discover groups you can join for group wellbeing such as pilates, yoga or simply walking. And there is a range of therapies to meet all needs.
