“We’re just spreading the love. Coming to a festival should be a joyous experience.”
“74% of our audience are regulars. I see people walking around the site in Cornbury 2004 T-shirts. Even I don’t own one of them!”
But why do they keep coming back? Perhaps it’s the mix of both established and emerging music acts (this year’s lineup also includes rising stars Gabrielle Aplin, The Shires and The Lottery Winners). Perhaps it’s the comedy and words stages, or the roaming entertainers. Whatever it is, it’s working. So with such an eclectic mix, how would Hugh describe the festival?
“I’d say we’re premium. We like everything to be done properly, we like it done thoughtfully, professionally, by people who really care about getting it right.” Cornbury Festival takes place between 8-10 July. Visit www.cornburyfestival.com to find out more.
