Jools will be the Jewel of the Show

From local acts to national treasures, the Cornbury Festival will bring you a line-up of amazing musical talent this summer. Get ready for three days of live performance and family entertainment between the 4th - 6th July at The Great Tew Park in Oxfordshire.


Friday's headliners include piano legend, Jools Holland, former Spice Girl, Melanie C, and local pop band, The Feeling.

On Saturday, you can look forward to festival favourite, Jon Allen, as well as the Scottish rockers, Simple Minds.

Sunday will see X Factor 2013 winner, Sam Bailey, and finalist, Luke Friend, as well as the Caribbean, Kid Creole & The Coconuts.


The kids can enjoy all sorts of activities, delve into other cultures, and learn lots of new skills. There will be a circus tent, where they can have a go at juggling, diabolo, plate spinning, stilt walking, devil sticks, flower sticks, cigar boxes, hula hoop, unicycle, and more. There will also be dance workshops with styles such as Bhangra, Bollywood, and Indian Mythical forms. Or join in a pirate pantomime, singing sessions, and a percussion show.

Outdoors there will be clay making, along with other arts and crafts, face painting, games, and a Punch & Judy show.


Little balloons are fun to wave around, but I'm talking about big balloons. Ride in a hot air balloon, and get a best view of the festival.


Whether you want to rough it or live the life of luxury, you can choose from all sorts of different tents, and locations, including right where to action is, quiet areas, or a beautiful arboretum.


If you're glamping it, you might want a massage; if you're roughing it, you might need a massage. Either way, treat yourself at the Therapixie tent to a range to treatments, such as a hot stone massage, holistic facial, and hopi ear candling.
