Organisers of this year’s Chacombebury Festival have said the event was a resounding success.
Hundreds of families attended the three-day event which saw popular Banbury bands Blue Meanies, Leatherat and Under the Covers perform on last Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively.
Tonya Angelina, who was part of the organising team, said: “It was a truly amazing and successful festival. So much work has gone into making this event a success and make it bigger and better. My mother was one of the people who started the music at the festival which was then just known as a cider festival, and my brother helped run it last year, so it really has been a family thing.”
Music was also provided by Spank the Money, The Vents and Lake Acacia. People were also able to enjoy a mixture of different ales, ciders and perrys. There was also clothing stalls, children’s magic show, village market, face painting and a football challenge.
Miss Angelina said: “There was such a happy atmosphere throughout all three days which was great to see. We heard so many people say how much they were enjoying themselves and how safe they were with their children, it was really nice to hear. People had come from all over the country to be here.
“We saw lots of things that we want to bring in next year, and in particular we would like to introduce some art ideas. The aim for us is to provide a happy place for people to enjoy themselves, and we are all really proud of this year’s event.”
