We’re so pleased to finally announce The Shires as the last of our headline acts this year. They’re quite simply the biggest UK country/ Americana act there is, and they’ll be making the August Bank Holiday Monday a day to remember!”

Towersey Festival takes place from Friday 24th - Monday 27th August at Tame Showground, in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. The festival offers four days and nights of the best Acoustic, Folk, Blues, World and Americana, with first class stages, and massive family appeal.
