Festival Description

The overriding aim of the Wychwood Festival is to provide a weekend on a scale that feels equally intimate for artist and audience alike, an event that mixes workshops with live music so that everyone comes away with a new experience of living music and cultural understanding, rather than just being a spectator. Blurring the boundaries between music styles somewhere between roots and world music, a cornucopia of sound, art and entertainment should keep all ages enthralled.

Wychwood is an eco-friendly festival and supports “The Big Ask” which is Friends of the Earth’s campaign on climate change. It encourages people to ask questions and take action. The Big Ask wants decisive action from the UK Government to tackle climate change. That’s why we’re calling for a law with annual targets to reduce the UK’s carbon emissions. Over 1,800 people supported The Big Ask at last year’s Wychwood festival. For more information visit:
