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!
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 1970's 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.
