These include Prog Floyd, Transit, The Ponderosa, Vibe, Michael Lee, Bright Shadows with the ever popular The Band With No Name closing the show.

Event organiser, Iola Seaton-Reid, said: “Our little festival is growing each year, raising essential funds for our school. The support from our sponsors, the musicians and the audience is tremendous.

“We are delighted that Windmill Windows are sponsoring the main stage this year with Westfield Fasteners of Long Crendon sponsoring the bar and McCormick Schwartz once again sponsoring the barbecue tent.”

As well as the music there will be a fully stocked bar featuring 10 real ales, local ciders, lots of lager, a Pimms tent, a barbecue as well as a traditional tea tent. For the children there is a craft activity tent and bouncy castle, ice creams and festival merchandise. Sponsor Rugby-Tots will be running rugby sessions.
