Visit the tremendous Bledlington Music Festival while staying in the Cotswolds

The Bledlington Music Festival will take place this June, meaning that people have an extra reason to book a one night spa break in the Cotswolds this summer.

The 2012 event is scheduled for June 12th, 13th and 14th and features some of the world's most highly-respected musicians, giving travellers the opportunity to witness some remarkable live performances.

It will also commemorate the life of John Ireland, who passed away on June 12th 1962.

Since its inception in 2000, the festival has grown every year and the music is played at St Leonard's Church in Bledlington, which is located in the heart of the Cotswolds and just ten minutes away from Stow-On-the-Wold, while Oxford is only a 40 minute trip.

With the event being set in such a wonderfully serene environment, people have lots of opportunities to explore the local countryside and witness why the region has been favoured by British holidaymakers for so long.

Because the Cotswolds is away from the UK's bustling city streets, it presents a more serene experience for visitors, representing the ideal destination for those who simply want to find a beautiful environment and somewhere to relax.

Once visitors have explored the beautiful local countryside, they can begin to look forward to the music on show at the Bledlington Festival, where Allisa Firsova and Jessica Hayes will perform on June 12th.

Ms Firsova will play a set on her piano, while Ms Hayes will be wowing audiences with her cello skills.

The duo will play John Ireland's Cello Sonata in G minor and Rachmaninov's Cello Sonata in G minor.

Other musicians set to perform during the festival include Lesley Jane Rogers, Jennie-Helen Motson and Mark Bebbington.

The event, coupled with the Cotswolds' stunning natural beauty, will mean that many travellers will be drawn to the region this June.
