Organisers of Cornbury Festival have announced that next year's event will be their last. The 14th and final Festival will be staged at The Great Tew Park in Oxfordshire from Friday 7 July to Sunday 9 July 2017.

'We've had a fantastic run over the last 13 years and are very proud of the lovely event we've created' says Festival Director Hugh Phillimore: 'We’ve hosted a marvellous annual party for our loyal audience – the odd royal, multigenerational families, aristocracy, Prime Ministers, film stars, farmers, rockers, and ladies who make exceedingly good cakes. We have found ourselves in the centre of a wonderful community and are proud that we’ve been able to benefit many local causes over the years.’

Nicknamed ‘Poshstock’, England’s most upmarket festival, Cornbury, has featured many brilliant performers over the last 13 years – Joe Cocker, Amy Winehouse, Robert Plant, Paul Simon, Van Morrison, Crowded House, Blondie, Hugh Laurie, Georgie Fame and the much-missed Humphrey Lyttelton amongst many others.

The festival has gained a reputation for its unique and friendly atmosphere and beautiful Cotswold location, and is critically praised as ‘England’s Most Elegant Gathering’.

‘We’re going out with a bang’ says Hugh. ‘I can’t wait to celebrate with friends old and new. Don’t miss out on this last chance to join us for our Fabulous Finale.’

Limited early bird tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 28th October and organisers are expecting very high demand. Regular Weekend tickets, Weekend with Camping and Quieter Camping will be available at discounted rates, along with VIP Weekend tickets which will be available as part of the early bird offer for the first time.
