The sixteenth Cornbury Music Festival is held in The Great Tew Park, Oxfordshire 5-7 July.
Joining headliners The Specials, Keane and The Beach Boys, artists include KT Tunstall, Elkie Brooks, Trevor Horn Band, Paul Cattack and Steeleye Span.
Amongst the sideshow events The Hairy Bikers return with their “pop up” wood-fired restaurant. There’s also an Edinburgh Fringe Festival preview featuring Lost Voice Guy and Rose Matafeo top prize winner at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards 2018. Whilst on the Caffe Nero stage Chris Difford, The Dunwells and are amongst the participants.
Cornbury is a truly “family-friendly” event where “music-lovers share pies and a glass of champagne with superstars, toffs, rockers, crooners, Morris dancers, farmers, urbanites, fashionistas, gourmet chefs and little old ladies who make exceptional cakes”.
On Sunday 28 July 2019, David Randall celebrated his 600th show. “Assume The Position” started in June 2007 on UK City Radio before transferring a year later to Get Ready to ROCK! Radio. The show includes tracks played on the first show plus Upton Blues Festival highlights, new music and the regular features “Live Legends” and “Anniversary Rock” which this week celebrates the Island Records label 60th anniversary.
