Cornbury is one of the longest-running festivals in the heart of Oxfordshire attracting 20,000 people over the last 17 years. It has a reputation as one of the safest festivals in the UK offering various family entertainments that are suited to all ages and tastes.

As it comes to an end, the Cornbury team can look back on some big-name headliners including Amy Winehouse, Joe Cocker, Elvis Costello, Robert Plant, Paul Simon, The Faces and Ray Davies.

“2017 had been intended as our last festival, but our customers encouraged us to continue, so we did! However, having to postpone the festival in both 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic has taken its toll and we have had to move on,” notes promoter Hugh Phillimore.

“We couldn’t leave without one last farewell, so, there will be fireworks, there will be feasts and there will be tears before bedtime, but we intend to make this year one hell of a party as we plan to go out with a bang!”

Cornbury Music Festival runs during 8-10 July at Great Tew Park, near Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire. For tickets and more information go to
