We are pleased to announce that POM-BEAR, the teddy-shaped snack brand, will feature at Cornbury Music Festival bringing a dedicated pop-up Family Picnic Zone for visitors to enjoy throughout the three day event.

Building on a summer campaign, which focuses on encouraging families to get out and about together for some picnic fun, POM-BEAR will create a country fete style picnic area, with bell tent, picnic benches, games for children to play, teddy bears, balloons and flags, all surrounded by a quaint picket fence.


In addition families will get the chance to meet and have their photograph taken with POM-BEAR himself who will be making an extra special appearance during the event on Saturday 5th July.

POM-BEAR’s Family Picnic Zone will give you the chance to take some time out together to relax, have fun and appreciate the surroundings, while enjoying a range of tasty treats and snacks that can be brought along in a picnic hamper or purchased from one of the many food outlets at the event.

The Picnic zone adds to the increasing list of things to see and do at Cornbury, which will set the Music Festival up to be a huge success!

Come to the festival and Glamp in the beautiful Great Tew Arboretum!




Already in one of the most beautiful corners of our lovely site – The Arboretum - this area is being extended and Glamping will now also take place around Great Tew’s beautiful St Michael & All Angels Church.

This is an idyllic location where Glampers are situated approximately 10-12 minutes’ walk away from the hustle and bustle of the main campsite, yet they’re welcome to sample the delights of the main campsite bar if they’d like to.

Guests are woken gently by the church bells that have been rung every Sunday since 1843 (don’t worry, they don’t go on for too long!) and can then enjoy breakfast in this serene setting before venturing out to the rest of our delightful festival with all it has to offer.

We have a fantastic array of accommodation to choose from:  tipis, yurts, podpads, and bell tents – or why not simply book a tent that has been pitched for you?  You will also have exclusive use of upmarket loos and showers!  Have a look at our Glamping page a

nd find the perfect camping solution for you.

Can’t wait to tell you what more we’ve got in store for you!
