Stages & Venues

Our main Festival venues are on one big greenfield site in the middle of a great showground in the Oxfordshire countryside. We have everything from 3000 people jumping up and down to 50 people listening intently only inches from the artists. So however you like to listen, watch or take part we have the stages and venues for you to enjoy! Check them out below.

The Festival Dance House has a reputation for some of the best dancing on the scene. Starting each day with the very popular family yoga, the venue moves through workshops in a whole range of dance styles into the amazing Towersey ceilidhs and dance from around the world. It's the place to be if you like to get moving and whether you're a beginner or an expert you will be welcomed in.

Our programme is packed with amazing stuff for younger adults to get stuck into, dance, play, create or just sit back and watch. As well as dedicated and exclusive "Youth" activities we also put on a range of activities across the festival that we think are perfect for our younger (and more energetic) festival goer. Look out for our Roller Disco, Themed Dance Nights, Late night specials, Comedy, "hands-on workshops" and Dance workshops in Morris, Euro, Jive, Ballet and more and not forgetting, the biggest line up of vibrant Ceilidh on the scene in our world famous Festival Dance House.

Shooting Roots are back leading our amazing Big Band and Song Sessions, we have world class actors to lead our Youth Theatre, Tech savvy folks building stuff in our Big Build and new for this year...The Amazing new hang out Teen Tent.
