The much-anticipated 3-day Lechlade Music Festival returns this year, from Friday 27th to Sunday 29th May.

The multi award-winning, family-friendly festival has bounced back for 2022, after the pandemic kept the event out of the calendar for 2 years. Now festival-goers will get to celebrate the 10th Lechlade Festival with a stellar line-up.

Pop songstress  Alexandra Burke  headlines Saturday night and  legendary music giants  The Boomtown Rats  will headline the  Renishaw Main Stage  on Sunday night, closing the show on a stupendous line-up of live music.  Over 100 artists will perform across 5 stages.

This year sees the addition of a new 2nd arena, a silent disco and a cabaret stage, featuring internationally acclaimed artists along with local talent. Friday sees headline tribute acts Guns or Roses and JK as Robbie Williams take to the stage. The introduction of the MusicLab Open Mic night on Friday will give would-be performers the chance for a slot at the festival.

Free family workshops are included in the festival ticket, and a wide variety of stalls, fabulous food and real ales will round off the experience.

Local businesses and organisations have stepped in to support and sponsor the event, including engineering giants Renishaw, Zapp Active, Edward Bays Ltd, Lechlade Town Council and Fairford based Pappillon Print. The Royal International Air Tattoo will sponsor the family workshop tents.

Residents in the surrounding areas benefit from huge savings on tickets with special rates for both camping and non-camping options. Tickets can be bought online via the website or at Lechlade Post Office (no booking fee). Children 16 and under still go free*.

Don’t miss 3 amazing days of fabulous, family festival fun!

Find out more at  www.lechladefestival.co.uk , on Facebook & Instagram.

*Children 16 & under and Teens (17-19) must be accompanied by a responsible adult (25+) bearing a valid adult ticket.

We spoke with the unmistakable voice behind the band Reef, Gary Stringer, ahead of their appearance at Fi.Fest in July.

The word is woefully over-used, but we think you’ll allow us to describe Bryan Adams as a genuine rock legend. Creating hit after hit since his debut in the early 80s, he has consistently kept his sense of self and his distinctive musical style relevant without compromise. We were absolutely over the moon when Bryan chose to speak with OX, exclusively, ahead of his headlining performance at the Cornbury Festival in July.

It’s a strange thing to be confronted by a famous face whether in the flesh or over Zoom; you never know when you’ll be a little starstruck. Anton du Beke has spent most autumn weekends in my living room for the past eight years but despite that, I had no idea what to expect when we arranged to speak ahead of his ‘Audience With’ at the Wycombe Swan in May.
