Cornbury Festival 2019

Last year I discovered a new festival and it was great. I don't know why I have only just found out about Cornbury as this will be its 16th Year! I love a grown up feel to a festival, neither a kids's festival (though I do love those for being silly, it's also nice to sip a glass of chardonnay in a deckchair while listening to something 'mummy likes' once in a while), nor a teen festival (I'm all for the odd late night rave and drunken stagger back to the tent at 4am occasionally but sometimes I like to be more...refined) The Cornbury Festival at the Great Tew Park turned out to be just lovely.


The flat ground meant that we could easily get all the tent things to our pitch. There were comedy tents, a vintage cinema, a helter skelter, even a 2p arcade, candy floss, a WI tent and local children performing on the smaller stages. The whole glorious relaxed vibe was ably assisted by perfect English weather.

I can recommend Cornbury festival to older couples and families, maybe not those with very small children, but children are welcome and there was a funfair.


The best things about Cornbury were the food choices, the excellent lineup, the weather*, and the location.

This year's lineup has just been announced and like last year it doesn't disappoint.


I'm looking forward to The Specials, on Friday of course, and Keane on Saturday (claim to fame, I once worked with Tim's mum)


and then the sound of the summer with The Beach Boys on the Sunday. Start your summer with a glorious festival in the Oxfordshire countryside.


Tickets are available with or without camping. Prices for adults start at £35 for children including camping, and £215 for adults with camping for the weekend. But you can also buy day tickets. Find out all the prices and buy tickets here


I was gifted tickets to attend and review the festival in 2018

*I can't promise the weather will be as perfect in 2019
