Deddington Festival is back! After a three year pandemic-induced hiatus, this extravaganza of fun for all the family is making a triumphant return!

Family favourites The Children’s Festival, Car Fest and Deddy Rocks will return, along with the ever popular Art Exhibition.

This year’s Children’s Festival offers pre-bookable workshops involving local children’s author Sarah Mahfoudh, the award winning Muddy Feet Forest School, Mini Professors, weaving – and chocolate! There will be a host of free activities too, as well as face-painting and a children’s cafe. The fun gets underway at 11am and runs until 2pm, so grab your grown up and come along to Deddington Parish Church for an event to remember! Visit us on Facebook @deddyfest for booking details.

Deddy Car Fest roars into action at midday with a high octane collection of vehicles. Cars available for paid passenger rides include Ferraris, Porsches, Jaguars, an Aston Martin, Bentley, and a Cobra. So, book a ride in the car of your dreams and wander round our static display – which this year features vehicles from the Prodrive Heritage Collection and a BAR Formula One car, as well as many other covetable classics. Once again, don’t forget to book your tickets in advance at – you don’t want to miss out!

Perennial favourite Deddy Rocks will take to the stage in the Market Place at 2pm! This year’s headliners will be the four-piece tribute band Queen II, who faithfully recreate the energy, excitement and emotion of a classic Queen concert. They will be joined by three other Festival favourites: ‘Cold Blue Daze’, a four-piece rock and pop covers band; ‘The Knights of Mentis’, an acoustic 10-piece that combines Americana, country, folk and roots music and ‘The Dave Arrowsmith Band’, an electric blues trio that specialises in applying a modern funky twist to old favourite blues hits.

Throughout the day, food and drink will be served in the Market Place and, just a short walk away at the Holly Tree Rooms, in Horsefair, the art exhibition and sale will be showcasing the impressive talents of local artists, potters and sculptors from 10am-5pm.
