There will be plenty of things for families to do at this year’s Cornbury Music Festival.
The event is at the Great Tew Estate from July 4-6 and highlights include cerebral fun from co-creator of QI John Mitchinson along with his QI elves and legendary music journalist Mark Ellen, who with former music insider John Niven will regale the audience with tales of the darker side of the music business.
Other treats to look out for include Tom Hodgkinson from the West London-based Idler Academy school and actor and comedian Robert Llewelyn talking about his latest sci-fi novel News from the Square set in a future world run by women.
Sunday starts quietly with a very late morning Sunday Hangover session run by wine buff and blogger Richard Bray, followed by performance poet, wit and raconteur George Chopping around lunchtime.
On Sunday afternoon Flamenco queen Rosa Maria takes over the marquee to teach festival-goers how to dance the rumba in readiness for world music stars The Gipsy Kings.
Absolute Radio will once again run a comedy stage with child-friendly comedy on Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 1pm-4pm and grown up acts in the early evenings.
