With blazing sunshine, a mini Glastonbury on St. Paul's Square as well as a day dedicated to JQ heritage, the JQ Festival returned for its fifth year running!


JQ Festival 2018

In 2018, the JQ Festival was bigger and better than ever with three locations full of fun and excitement. We welcomed back family fun favourites - The Helter Skelter and Circus Mash - as thousands of visitors descended on the JQ over three fantastic days.

JQ Festival 2017

In its third year, 2017 saw 14,500 visits over the course of the weekend with 91% of visitors telling us that they would recommend the event to friends and family.


JQ Festival 2016

The 2016 JQ Festival was blessed with fantastic weather. It expanded on the previous year as we introduced St. Paul's Square as a new Festival hub as well as welcoming a large marquee to the Golden Square.
