Every August, Cropredy inhabitants welcome an invasion of up to 20,000 music-lovers for Fairport's Cropredy Convention. The festival site and the adjacent village melt into one big jamboree. It’s excellent stuff!
2109 witnesses the festival's FORTIETH Anniversary!
The festival is not only a celebration of one of most influential bands to grace a stage, but also acts as a showcase for emerging artists, as well as featuring some major players on the international music scene. This is all a rather special annual event.
Organised by Fairport Convention itself, this outdoor extravaganza has been held annually since the 1970s so the audience includes children (and even grandchildren) of festival-goers who've been coming back year after year. There is also a strong contingent of younger newcomers each year. This gives the event a uniquely 'family-friendly' atmosphere and a real sense of tradition.
Ticket prices (from): Three-day festival tickets cost £140. Camping tickets cost £45 for three nights.
