What/where is it?
This year is the 10th anniversary of the Cornbury Festival, which is held in the rural enclave of Great Tew Park, Oxfordshire. It’s been described as one of the “cleanest, coolest and most civilised” of the boutique festivals. It’s also one of the most well-heeled – it’s been dubbed “poshstock” by one wit - and exudes a slightly eccentric, country fayre-style charm.

Why will the family love it?
Cornbury is a nicely-organised and comfortable event with many useful and enjoyable add-ons. It’s also a good-natured and inclusive event that puts children at the forefront. The Children’s Zone at Cornbury 2013 will include attractions such as a circus tent offering circus skills, a magician’s card trick class, an eco-music workshop and a ‘Dream Drum & Soundscapes’ workshop for families.
