Our review of the Cornbury Festival 2019

July 9, 2019 admin 0

We have just got back from our first ever weekend camping festival experience.  After much deliberation and review reading we chose the Cornbury Festival to be our first, based mainly on the fact it had such good write ups when it came to being family friendly, and it was definitely the right choice.
