Description:3 day festival of music and good cheer. The Fairport Convention have been going since the 60s and this is their festival!
A hard working group that has overcome changes and tragedies to lodge themselves in the halls of musical fame.

Cropredy is a pretty village five miles north of Banbury in Oxfordshire (see the location map on this website). Every August, its inhabitants welcome an invasion of up to 20,000 music-lovers for Fairport's Cropredy Convention. The event is held over the second full weekend of August, from Thursday afternoon to midnight on Saturday.

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.

What's more, first-timers 'Cropredy virgins' are given an especially warm welcome.

"Fairport did for real ale what the Grateful Dead did for LSD"
