The vision of the Deddington Festival is to enhance the community spirit of the parish of Deddington and surrounding villages by providing a range of events designed to appeal to all ages and interests.




As Deddington Festival is a charity and run by volunteers, we rely on sponsorship from business and donations from private individuals and trusts to fund this fantastic community event.  So we need your support. 



Deddington Festival covers the villages of Deddington, Hempton and Clifton.  Deddington is the largest village with a very active community of 2,200 people split across 990 households.  It has a busy commercial centre and a very popular Farmers’ Market.  Many people attend the Festival events from Banbury, Oxford and the villages in-between.

Sponsorship of Deddington Festival is a great way to reach a high proportion of consumers in the local area and the wide range of events means the Festival has a broad appeal for all ages and interests.

Our events

Deddington Festival has a core offering of events which are highly anticipated locally and well attended each year. We supplement these events with additional events annually to keep the Festival fresh.

Our popular core events include:

  • Jazz in the Church – The beautiful parish church of St. Peter and St. Paul is transformed into a moodily lit speakeasy each year for an evening of world class jazz.
  • Deddy Rocks – Through Festival favourite Deddy Rocks, we showcase the musical talents of some great local bands, taking over the garden of one of our lovely local pubs and starting with a family barbecue in the afternoon, a performance by the local school choir and children’s disco, before the bands take to the stage and rock through the evening.
  • The Children’s Festival – A fantastic turnout during its inaugural year in 2017 means the Children’s Festival is here to stay! This event offers a host of fun-filled events for families, including a talk by a children’s author; pot painting; jewellery making; dance and photography workshops; clay modelling; T-shirt painting and lots of opportunities to perfect and perhaps even discover artistic and musical skills in the beautiful setting of the Parish Church. And when they are tired out from all their artistic endeavours, kids and their parents can relax at our children’s café, have their faces painted and enjoy the skills of our resident balloon modeller.
  • Deddy Car Fest – One of those events which seems destined to grow and grow, Deddy Car Fest is a treat for all those petrol heads out there. We take over the Market Place for a celebration of cars old and new, vintage and supercars, offering enthusiasts the chance to not only look at some of the finest cars ever built, but to go for a drive in them too!
  • Poetry Please – This popular evening of poetry and prose showcases the poetic prowess lurking in our community.
  • Art Exhibition and Sale – This event showcases the impressive talents of local artists, potters and sculptors.
  • History Walk – Always well attended, the history walk delves into the fascinating history of Deddington and provides an entertaining and informative insight into local life through the ages.

Exciting extra events are also planned each year.
