Cornbury’s Fabulous Finale

cornbury-grand-finale

Cornbury Festival has had a successful 13 year run. It has provided a lovely, rather posh family-friendly event that has converted even the most festival-shy.

However, this year, after much deliberation, the 14th  Cornbury Festival will be the last. The good folk at Cornbury are looking forward to going out with a bang.

They’ve promised us they are pulling out ALL the stops for The Fabulous Finale. There will be all the usual great stuff, an array of top talent, friends old and new. There may even be a few sparklers at the end.

Cornbury 2016 Review

Dancing, relaxing, playing, laughing, feasting…

These are the first five words that spring to mind when I think back on our four days at Cornbury. I think it’s testament to a really great festival, especially where children are involved, when you can come back feeling relaxed and switched off. We were lucky to have exactly that experience.

Cornbury 2015 Review

I didn’t really know what to expect from Cornbury 2015 – having read words like ‘genteel’ and ‘civilised’ thrown at it, and being well aware of its location near Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire, home of the ‘Chipping Norton set’ I feared we commoners may be a little out of place.

Best Family Festivals 2015

CIAF 2014


Here are our top picks for 2015!

Whether a festival is good for you depends on what music you’re into and what other things you like doing at festivals, as well as the age of your kids. If you are new to festivals with kids, you may want to read our guide to Choosing the right Family-Friendly Festival.

We have included our affiliate links in the listings – if you click “Buy Tickets Now” you will go straight to the ticket page for your chosen festival. You will not pay anything for this but the festival will give us a small commission to keep Festival Kidz up and running – so please use them!

Cornbury 2014 Review

Cornbury Music Festival 2014

Review by Ellie Allen and family

“Are we nearly there yet?”

My husband and I, along with our two boys (ages seven and eight) have been looking forward to this festival for weeks! Finally the day arrived and after a busy day at work and school, we were on our way.

We’d been watching the weather forecast all week and for once it was right. Read more…

Now is a great time to start thinking about buying your festival tickets – most of the festivals offer ‘early bird’ prices, which means they are reduced if you book them early.

Cornbury 2012 Review

Friday – Day One

Our much anticipated fun weekend at the fabulous Cornbury Festival began on Friday afternoon as we headed towards the beautiful countryside of Great Tew, Oxfordshire. The sky was full of grey rain clouds but our mood was light as our destination was reached without any traffic problems at all, parking was well organised and lucky us, the sun broke through as we excitedly took the short haul from car to box office to collect our media passes and camping tickets courtesy of Festival Kidz!!
