Cornbury Music Festival is back this year and Saturday’s all female line up promises to be a show stopper.

After an out pouring of support for the Great Tew festival following last years announcement that the 2017 event was to be the last, organiser Hugh Phillimore relented to bring back the three day feast of music this summer.
