In brief: With huge headliners such as James Blunt, Bryan Adam, Jools Holland and Ronan Keating, the Cornbury Music Festival is not one to miss. It is also important not to miss this one, as according to Cornbury’s founder Hugh Phillimore this festival will also be the last. The independent festival which started out at Cornbury Park in 2003 moved to its current location in 2011 but didn’t lose its name.
