Great Barn Festival 3 – 18 months late but worth the wait we return to The National Trust Great Barn in Great Coxwell for a weekend of family theatre and storytelling, music and art.
Saturday September 18th and Sunday September 19th hold a programme full of medieval music and display instruments, local amateur singer songwriters and choirs, internationally acclaimed concert performers and members of some of the country’s most loved folk groups. From David Gibb’s music for families to Sebastian Mueller, concert violinist, the vintage popular folk of The Servant’s Ball (not one to miss - you will recognise many faces in this exciting line up) to Oxford and North Carolina’s Autumn Saints we have an eclectic mix of folk, roots and Americana throughout the weekend. We close with a raucous outdoor theatre production of Robin Hood from the West End director of The Play that Goes Wrong, expect fantastical story telling, a plethora of musical instruments and songs, many a quick change and some terrible stage fighting.
The Great Barn is possibly the best ventilated venue for miles and the acres of grounds with views over beautiful countryside lend themselves perfectly for the weekend to our relaxed and friendly family festival. We have taken extra measures from reducing capacity so everyone can feel comfortable in the space to hiring in certified professional cleaning crews who will frequently maintain all facilities. We will be constantly monitoring and updating our policies to make certain the event is run as considerately as possible this may mean some changes as time goes by to our programme. However, should conditions change significantly and we are forced to cancel you will receive a full and immediate refund.
