The Sunday Mirror has described the Wychwood festival as "Britain's most popular music festival" and The Independent as "The Best Festival for Families". We just have to agree. This is a lovely little festival, which is small enough to be intimate and inclusive and it really does have its own charm.
There aren't many small festivals which can boast such a fantastic line up, either; legends 10cc played there in 2016 and probably the biggest name in children's entertainment, Justin Fletcher, was there to ensure that all the little ones were kept beaming from ear to ear.
Other exciting spectacles include the silent disco (which is a must!), the numerous craft and literature workshops available and the comedy stage.
