"A life-enhancing welcome offered to all"

Is how one writer described the Towersey Festival experience and who are we to disagree!  Come on in, have a look around and join us for the 2016 Festival.  Along with the warmest of welcomes, you can expect top class music on stages big and small; dance, hands-on workshops, ground-breaking children's and youth programmes and that special something that makes Towersey the perfect end to summer.  So whether you like to sit back and let the music come to you or seek out activity and get your dancing shoes on, we’ve got it covered.  Nestled in a corner of the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside, our site offers wonderful camping, easy access to day trippers and the added bonus of a short walk to the stunning market town of Thame.  Come join us.
