Tewkesbury 2021
In 2021 two important anniversaries coincide, the Battle of Tewkesbury in 1471 and the consecration of the Tewkesbury Abbey Choir in 1121, 550 and 900 year anniversaries respectively.
To celebrate these anniversaries, the Town is organising a year of celebration through 2021 with a host of special events for Town's People and Visitors.
Tewkesbury Town is uniquely placed to celebrate such anniversaries, with functioning living heritage older than the anniversaries themselves.
A small selection of many regular annual events are featured in the images on the left, click any for further information or our Welcome Page button or What's On Guide button:

Special Tewkesbury 2021 events will be featrured here in due course and in the What's On Guide.
Tewkesbury has some of the finest 11th to 15th century buildings still in use today. The Gloucestershire Dendrochronology Project is currently working to date the timbers in the buildings, a few surprises are expected.
The charming High Street has an outstanding range of independent shops providing a range of quality and choice not found anywhere else.
The Tewkesbury area has rich heritage, is located in outstanding countryside, is free of congestion and perfectly located for the Cotswolds, Malverns, Cheltenham, Worcester and Forest of Dean. Easy access to a wide range of things to do all year round.
The Abbey has always been important to the Town's People. During the Dissolution of the Monasteries, they insisted that it was their parish church which they had the right to keep, they purchased the Abbey from Henry the 8th for £453 in 1539, about £450,000 in today's money.
The Town's Black Bear Inn has served beer since before 1308, it's located at an ancient river Avon crossing point, used by the Romans going to Worcester. Being the only crossing point, it's highly likely Britain's ancient Beaker People did so too, some 5000 years ago, on their way from Bredon Hill.
