The fifth annual Chipping Norton Festival is set to take place in the town centre on Sunday, June 22.

For the second year running the Rotary Club of Chipping Norton is closely involved with the organisation, in conjunction with management committee members from the town, and organisers are promising the event will be more enjoyable than ever.

Simon Hamilton, vice president of Chipping Norton Rotary Club, said: “There will be more than nine hours of live music from 11am on a specially constructed stage near the Town Hall, with different styles of music to suit all tastes.

“In addition there will be a show of classic and interesting cars, more than 50 stalls, children’s rides and games, food stalls, a hog roast and all the fun we expect from a small town country fair. The festival promises to be a lively and inexpensive day out.”

The event is aimed at families and there will be lots of activities for children at pocket money prices, including children’s rides and games, masks and balloons, face painting and temporary tattoos, hats, candy floss, sweets and lollipops, a play bus and a bouncy castle.

The music will be an eclectic mix consisting of local choirs, gypsy rock, gospel folk, heavy metal, classical guitar and blues.

The festival is run solely for the benefit of Chipping Norton organisations and charities and relies on sponsorship, advertising and donations to pay its way.

Midlands Co-operative has agreed to be a major sponsor this year and organisers wish to thank all sponsors for their support and generosity.

Mr Hamilton said: “More than 2,000 people enjoyed the fun last year, and it is hoped even more can come along this year – it will be a truly enjoyable experience.”
