After previously announcing that 2017's event would be the last Cornbury Festival, it's been decided to continue and Cornbury will be back at The Great Tew Estate, Chipping Norton, in Oxfordshire from Friday 13th until Sunday 15th July 2018.
Organiser Hugh Philmore says he's been cajoled into continuing. "So many people have sent messages since July - our audience love the event and want it to keep going. Literally hundreds of our supporters, together with bands, agents, managers, sponsors and media partners telling me I shouldn’t let such a jewel in the festival calendar end."
He continued "The festival market has become a tough playing field over the last few years and very saturated, which lead partly to my decision to leave whilst we were on a high, however the response has been so overwhelming with support for Cornbury to remain, that it has caused a rethink on my part and I can confirm that we have decided to listen to public opinion and return next year as strong as ever in July 2018, If people still want us here, in a way It would be foolish to stop now and 15 years does give us another great reason to celebrate!’
Further details for the 15th Cornbury Festival in July 2018 will be announced over the coming weeks and months.
