The Burford Festival June 2022

As you are surely aware, September 2022 brings you The Burford Literary Fest.

Before that we are delighted that June 2022 sees the return of the biennial "Burford Festival" and we are thrilled to be one of the sponsors and most definitely a very keen supporter!

How fabulous it is to have not one but two glorious festivals in our beautiful Burford.

The biennial Burford Festival runs every other year in June. It is a 10-day celebration of horticulture, arts, sciences and culture. Burford Festival '22 will run from Friday 10th to Sunday 19th June. It is a festival of Blues, choral, classical, jazz and folk music, literary events, special interest talks, film and theatre and Burford's Open Gardens. With over 55 events, there is something for everyone!

One of our favourite things is encouraging children into the world of the written word, they are the Roald Dahl and Alice Oseman of the future. As part of the Burford Festival Burford Library are running a writing competition for young adults and children and we are delighted to lend our support and encouragement and there is still a few days in which to get your entry in!
