It was a sad day (among many) when we learned that because of that dratted coronavirus, the fabulous Cornbury Festival would not be going ahead in 2020. But like an early Christmas present we've just learned that event organisers have a cunning plan for the 2021 even as well as a big new Friday night headline act.
Yes, Cornbury Festival have confirmed that they will go ahead as a socially distanced festival 9th – 11th July 2021, unless pandemic restrictions are eased, the festival will adhere to all Govt guidelines to make the outdoor, Summer event Covid safe.
Festival organiser Hugh Phillimore is keen to hi-light that as a festival whose clientele are used to posh loos as standard, arena seating, fine dining and a certain level of comfort, some of the Covid safe additions, will not be too different from their regular VIP offering. ‘If any festival can cope with social distancing and safety restrictions Cornbury can, we are a very civilised event!”
The line up is expected to remain much the same as originally intended for 2020, however a regular favourite at the festival BRYAN ADAMS has been confirmed as the Friday Night Headliner.
