Great day – great atmosphere – such a wonderful event to have in Croxley – only suggestion would be to have a ‘cover band’ as the last up as we were all ready to sing along and dance by then….can’t wait for CROXFEST 2013 !

Fantastic day on the green and so nice to watch people of all ages, families and friends enjoying the music from the local community. Its days like this that make Croxley Green a hidden gem.
Noise level was perfect this year, just need a few more stalls for the younger kids would be nice, so the parents can stay longer.

Zoe

Definitely a day to put in your annual diary. Good to see local bands, young and old. Very well organised. Wish there was more community events like this in Croxley. Long live the Croxfest!

Mandy

Another lovely afternoon of music, sun and friends. Would agree with other folk that one of the covers bands should have headlined, as most people are ready to dance at the end of the day. Great organisation again.

September 21, 2012 8:05 am

Steve

A superb afternoon … Really looking forward to 2013!

September 20, 2012 10:24 pm

Absolutely brilliant day! Obviously it helped that it was hot and sunny but there was great music, great bands and a wonderful atmosphere too. A huge thank you to everyone involved in the organisation

Laura

Croxfest is AMAZING i went last year with my mum and her friends, raved so much about it that this year about 20 of my friends came and said it was so much fun ! personally id like a croxfest once a month!

September 20, 2012 12:57 pm

Sue

Brilliant day! Hope this becomes a yearly event, have attended both so far and had a great time. Fabulous whether you’re with friends, a couple or with children, not often you get such an all rounder

September 20, 2012 12:23 pm

Helena flynn

Unfortnately both years I was unable to attend as I work all day Saturday 🙁 and I’m sure I was not the only person that this was the case for. Would it be maybe be Considered to be held on a Sunday next year ?

September 20, 2012 10:20 am

keith

We had a really good time and was pleasently surprised about how well organised the whole day was. Well done

September 20, 2012 10:03 am

Matt

We all had a great day out.it was very nice to see live music on the green rather than load of old cars being shown off by a load of middle aged men with to much money

September 20, 2012 9:51 am

Pat

brilliant – hope it is an annual event, enjoyed by all the family from babies to oldies

September 20, 2012 8:49 am

Jane

I was born in Croxley, over 50 years ago, and have lived here all my life. I think it is wonderful that the Green is finally being put to good community use and coming into the 21st century. An excellent event for all the family – only wished it could have finished later. The organisers behind this event have founded a truly brilliant concept that I hope goes on and on ………..just like the Revels !!

September 20, 2012 8:33 am

Bev

A fantastic day for all the family. We took a picnic and stayed for the majority of the day … only went home when my 4 year old granddaughter crashed out after so much dancing!
Really friendly atmosphere, well organized and an outstanding event for Croxley.
Well done to all concerned and look forward to 2013

September 20, 2012 8:19 am

Martyn

For the second year in a row Croxfest was quality! The good weather helped if course. I thought “The Late Day Breakers” were particularly good – Bring it on again next year, and perhaps we could have a second stage as well?

September 20, 2012 8:16 am

Alexis

What a fantastic family day out, the bands were great, the food stalls lovely, the children had an amazing time and everyone was smiling! what a fantastic community spirit! Well done guys for organising

September 20, 2012 7:56 am

Pat

Had a great time sorry we had to go early

September 20, 2012 5:33 am

Karen

Had a great time at croxfest 2012, the bands were great ! The atmosphere was really good as well. Will definately be going again next year.

September 20, 2012 12:56 am

Simon

An amazing event for sleepy suburbia. Bands were quite a mixed bag but I liked most of them. Progress from last year’s promising start and rewarded by a bumper crowd of all ages. Some more laid back sounds would have been good on such a sunny afternoon and maybe a few more younger musicians early on as well as the “well tried and tested” acts. Recorded music between sets was a bit “standard” – could be more diverse. Loads of kids so more entertainment for them maybe. Overall though a credit to the organisers and volunteers and yes sell some T shirts!

September 18, 2012 3:05 pm

Doudou

Great day; I went with my son, enjoyed it so much we went home and came back with my wife! Music was great; a really friendly, relaxed atmosphere; very family friendly; met some lovely people; marshalls & volunteers couldn’t have been more helpful. Only gripe would be that the food was average at best.

September 18, 2012 1:10 pm

Sam

What a fantastic day. The first time I’d been, I wish that I had known about it in previous years, let’s hope that we can experience it again next year. I was really upset when Watford’s Rainbow festival was axed, it surely can’t happen to the Croxfest too. Such a lovely atmosphere, listening to fantastic music, dancing with people that you have never met before, everyone wearing smiles. A huge thank you to all the people who helped organise it, all the band members, technicians and everyone else who made such a great day happen.

September 18, 2012 10:33 am

Pete

Well after a very wet summer the sky performed as good as the bands. It was a really enjoyable day all the best to all who put in a great deal of effort to make it happen. Do hope the backing is there for another next year.

September 17, 2012 11:50 pm

Chris

I missed it this year and by all the comments we wish we could have been there. Last year was really great and met up with a lot of FAMILY AND FRIENDS. So will make sure we are with you next year. Keep the good work. All the best.

September 17, 2012 7:39 pm

Jane

We travelled over an hour to get there and it was worth it. We will definitely look out for it again next year. Well done!

September 17, 2012 5:00 pm

Diane, All Saints' Church

A great day, enjoyed by everyone on the All Saints’ Church stall. A really good atmosphere, friendly and relaxed, good music and food and a wonderful community event. We feel honoured to have been given the chance to raise funds for our new kitchen, in our hall which is used by 700 local people each week. We raised £889.93 (£431.75 from cakes and jam and £458.18 in the buckets). Many thanks to everyone who contributed, and to the Parish Council and all the sponsors and organisers.

September 17, 2012 4:54 pm

Sharon

What a great family day out, I love the way we use the green for the whole community to enjoy. Really well organised and finished at a good time, can’t wait for next years croxfest.

September 17, 2012 4:39 pm

Sam

It was really good and a fantastic experience for me, all my friends seemed to really enjoy it aswell so please keep up the funding 😀 Croxfest is what brings our community together

September 17, 2012 4:34 pm

Charlotte Mackie

A really well put together event, someone said to me the community feel to the event has taken over from the revels, what with ever decreasing procession. It would be great, although I understand cost is an issue, to have screens further back. Only one negative would be parking, I live at Copthorne Cottages and normally that part of the green isn’t used for parking, so maybe next year that could be changed so it is only used in the event that the other side is clear. Otherwise amazing event.

September 17, 2012 3:29 pm

Dan

It was great having somewhere cool to go, i came to see late day breakers but enjoyed all the bands. it was great for all ages (im 11) and want to come next year. thanks everyone for putting on this event

September 17, 2012 2:54 pm

Well done again, last year was great, this year was better, next year…

September 17, 2012 2:21 pm

We really enjoyed it- looking forward to next year (shame the food stands closed before the event did though!)

September 17, 2012 2:09 pm

Fantastic day! Well done to everybody involved.

Fantastic day, well done to all the organisers and bands…

September 17, 2012 1:48 pm

Olly

Great day! Can’t wait till next year!

September 17, 2012 1:43 pm

Nigel

Here’s my view: I thought Croxfest was amazing. Brilliant bands, excellent weather, thousands of people of all denominations enjoying the day – what’s not to like? Being the drum-tech was awesome too- great fun and I got to meet some really cool people backstage. Sure, we’ll have our detractors, and they’re allowed their say: buy there’s no doubt that vastly more people enjoyed it than didn’t. (I was told that the music was quieter this year too- see, we do listen to complaints!)

September 17, 2012 1:41 pm

Zara

What a great day. Great music and a fantastic atmosphere. Can’t wait until Croxfest 2013! Well done to everyone involved, it is an event to be really proud of having in Croxley.

September 17, 2012 12:38 pm

Ricky

great day…

September 17, 2012 11:04 am

Damon

What a fantastic day! As part of the medical team with Event First Aid Services we all had an absolutely brilliant day, lots of fun and laughs, and plenty of glorious sunshine! Cant wait to be part of Croxfest 2013 next year!

September 16, 2012 8:00 pm

Stevv

What a great day. Thanks and congratulations to all who organised it. And well done to the council for supporting it – a real service to the community. Next year I think we’ll turn up with a gazebo and settle in for the day.

September 16, 2012 7:03 pm

natalieeeee

great day… went with a group of friends and stayed for the full day! beautiful weather… well worth the planning! well done everyone!

Miriam

A great day, enjoyed by everyone on the All Saints’ Church stall. A really good atmosphere, friendly and relaxed, good music and a wonderful community event. We feel honoured to have been chosen to be one of the Croxfest charities for 2012. We raised £889.93 which will go towards the hall kitchen project. Many thanks to everyone who contributed, the organisers and all the sponsors.

it was fun. I enjoyed dancing to the live music. Kids area great. Food a bit pricey.More fest in Croxley please !

September 14, 2012 4:47 pm

Graham

Better Atmosphere than year one which was fantastic in its own rights!!! Going from Strength to Strength. Brilliant Family Day Out–Fun had by all..
Bring on Croxfest 2013

September 14, 2012 2:16 pm

Annie

Fabulous Day! What a great community Croxley is – so many families having fun! Well organised – see you next year!

Late Day Breakers

We had a great day and loads of fun on stage!!!!

Clare

Had the most fantastic day at Croxfest! so looking forward to doing it again next year – It was such a well organised family friendly event with great bands! Many thanks to those who organised it!

September 14, 2012 9:37 am

janie

a fab fest.Excellent organisation, great sound equipment, the bands even ran to time !! Car parking well organised .A good community get together gfor all ages.
Loved the Late Day Breakers, nice to hear original music not just covers.
Perhaps a few local charity run stalls providing more choice of food and simple stalls for the kids would make a great fest even better.
Im sure £2 a car could be charged for parking to raise a little money for the event without anyone getting upset.

September 14, 2012 9:04 am

siobhan

Great day , great music, great company , great family atmosphere enjoyed last year but this year but this year was much much better. See you next year.

September 14, 2012 8:21 am

Sarah

For the 2nd year in a row we were blessed with the best day of summer! A fantastic day out again, great bands, great compare (well he is my little brother so I have to say that!) great organisation and a great vibe! Talking of Vibe (Radio) heard a few comments about them whilst chatting….people did not like the “chart pop” they were playing in between bands. a) it didnt reflect any of the bands and b) it was repetitive. It would perhaps have been better to play a variety of songs from different genres and eras as the point of Croxfest is its a family day therefore grabbing audiences from a wide range of ages. There’s only so much Dizzy Rascal anyone can take!
As the event has grown slightly from last year then it goes without saying, the headache f any festival, more loo’s please! Queuing on the Green was slightly surreal!
But thats it…the only 2 points! It was yet again a brilliant day out! Thank you! 🙂

September 14, 2012 8:16 am

Ali Morris

Another brilliant,successful Croxfest.Well done to everyone involved.Looking forward to next years!

Great event overall. Very, very Croxley. Good natured and respectful crowd of all ages enjoying themselves. The good weather has been a massive boon both years. If held again and the weather turned out to be bad then hopefully the obvious success of the first two years will be remembered. Great mixture of bands who have all risen to the occasion. Only criticism is that Flutatious, who were my favourite band both years, don’t come across as a headlining act in my opinion. Organisation behind the scenes cannot be faulted from an attendee’s point of view and the volunteers are absolutely brilliant. I personally think the finish time is about right on balance for the Croxfesters, local residents and any police concerns. This type of event is an ideal opportunity for those who live in Croxley, have lived in Croxley, like Croxley, have friends in Croxley, or are just passing through and are enticed in, to get together. Croxfest is a great showcase for the area and makes wonderful use of one of the villages best assets. Hope CGPC allocate the funding for future events as it would be a shame if this annual event ceased to be just as it is getting going.

September 13, 2012 11:26 pm

Russell

Great turnout for a lovely event ! Thinking of getting a posse together for next year ! Might even try to get my band on the list !

September 13, 2012 10:41 pm

Monique

Croxfest year after year never fails to deliver a fun filled day for all the family to enjoy. It is part of annual rituals. Croxley’s event of the year. Love it!

September 13, 2012 10:36 pm

Selina

where do i start? lol! Absolutely loved Late Day Breakers amongst others! there was a good mix of music played and a really fab atmosphere all day! great choice of food available and a fantastic space to hold the event in! Could possibly have a little more entertainment aimed at the children (the bouncy castle was for the really little ones) maybe get some more local businesses involved? oh and maybe cut the grass on the “car park” ;-)The running of the event was great and i would love to see more events like this….. a huge thank you and well done to all that helped make this happen! i’ll be coming back next year with a lot more friends!!!

September 13, 2012 10:33 pm

Natalie'

Lovely lovely day out!! Lovely atmosphere! Looking forward to next years!!

September 13, 2012 10:33 pm

Lizzie

Our whole family enjoyed croxfest this year…we came to support the local bands and enjoy the glorious weather. Don’t know what we would do without croxfest, we have thoroughly enjoyed this year and last. It has an amazing atmosphere and everyone crowds in together to make the day even better. I truly hope that you are able to run Croxfest 2013 as we are looking forward to it already!!

September 13, 2012 10:31 pm

Neli

Much improved from last year (which was also good) with the food stalls – and the sound seemed better too – keep it going its obviously going to get bigger and better! Bit later finish if poss?

September 13, 2012 10:31 pm

Gav from Colvex

Absolutely loved it. Great day all round — fantastic stage crew, great sound system and most importantly a wonderful friendly atmosphere out in the crowd. Oh, and the weather was amazing! We were honoured to be on the bill and hope we entertained you 🙂

September 13, 2012 10:30 pm

Kate Maclaurin

Absolutely brilliant! Well organised, trouble free, family orientated event! Hopefully should become yearly as this year seemed more popular than last. People cleared up after themselves and showed true respect for the green. Bands great and the announcer of the day threw himself into the spirit of the day as were the band helpers! Long may it continue.

September 13, 2012 10:29 pm

disco dave

It was ok. not really much atmosphere. The bands seemed to be too disjointed with the bulk of the audience due to the location of the stage. For this reason the festival needs to be in a different location. The location is too narrow with a busy road next to it.
It starts far too early and finishes early. Even if it went from 13:00-21:00 it would be fine.
It might be nice to have some opera on the green or classical music.

September 13, 2012 10:22 pm

Jo

Fantastic day, great atmosphere, well organised, we had a great time and so did everyone else we know who went to the event. Hoping that Croxfest becomes a regular fixture!

September 13, 2012 10:21 pm

Sue Matthews

Fab day, lovely atmosphere an absolute triumph – will definitely come again next year.

September 13, 2012 10:21 pm

Beckie

Loved every minute of it! The atmosphere was absolutely amazing and it was lovely to see everyone happy and making merry on such a glorious day! Roll on 2013!

September 13, 2012 10:21 pm

Total class event well done to all the team great community day out more please

September 13, 2012 10:01 pm

Great day, with family and friends. Can’t wait for next year.

September 13, 2012 6:14 pm

Sharon

What a fantastic day! Thankyou so much to the organising committee for all their hard work. It was such a great event for our community to share. Bring on Croxfest 2013! I agree with others, 8pm a little early for us too, 10pm would be great.

September 11, 2012 5:52 pm

Dave

Great festival, well orginised, too many cover bands though for my taste, can see that at weddings and pubs but it seems the people like that so fair enough, loved Flutatious, proper festival band, liked Caution Horses. Hope you keep getting the support, you deserve it…..

September 11, 2012 1:18 pm

Neill

Had a fantastic day ! Everyone was in a great mood.Food was lovely especially the Mexican.Seeing all the kids running around haveing the time of their lives was priceless.
Only complaint was order of the bands as I thought last 2 bands should have swapped

September 11, 2012 10:50 am

louise

Had a fab time, Thank you everyone xx Maybe Phil should make alternative plans next year, go off and be misserable somewhere else

September 11, 2012 8:51 am

Ben

Top day, only possible due to the effort put in by many committed people….and don’t forget to support the local sponsors who helped to bring it to fruition!

September 11, 2012 8:08 am

Kim

A credit to the committee, volunteers and bands, Parish Council and all the sponsors. Well done all, fantastic day.

September 10, 2012 10:56 pm

Debra

What a terrific atmosphere we enjoyed at Croxfest. This is a great family event that brings our community together. We appreciated the variety of food stalls that catered to everyone. I look forward to Croxfest next year.

September 10, 2012 7:52 pm

CroxleyGreen.com

Perfect! Well done and thanks to Mark, Big Stu and the rest of the team(s), we think there should be a Croxfest every year!

September 10, 2012 7:40 pm

Kerry

Absolutely brilliant! My only complaint is that it finished too early…huge thanks to everyone that helped to put on such a great event. P.S maybe people who can’t cope with noise could go out for the evening..just an idea 😉

September 10, 2012 5:38 pm

David

What an absolutely amazing day, why can’t we have more events like this in Croxley Green?

September 10, 2012 1:39 pm

Amanda

Croxfest was absolutely fantastic! I loved every minute of it! I want to thank everyone involved in organising it as it went so well, the bands were fantastic and to all the people who came to support the event. I have being some photography for the event for the last 2 years and it has given me some fantastic experience and am really happy as I am registered visually impaired and a lot of people don’t get to live their dreams so I thank them very much for letting me help them out! Also I have to thank the parish council as without them it wouldn’t happen!
If you would like to dee my photos from the event they live here http://www.flickr.com/photos/mandyclarkie/

September 10, 2012 1:36 pm

Bez

We thought it was excellent and would love it to become a regular village fixture in the calendar. As it gets bigger, Croxfest should be able to attract even bigger bands if it gets a name for itself. Just one thought (not criticism) about the running order – the “covers” bands were better received than the original material bands particularly later in the day/evening. Something like a decent Queen tribute band to finish Croxfest would have got everything singing and dancing into the night. Just a thought. Cheers to everyone involved.

September 10, 2012 1:21 pm

Phil

A great afternoon of varied music, in the sun with hundreds of likeminded individuals and families. Agree with the comment below about how good it was to see “The Green” being used for a fantastic piece of community entertainment for young and old alike !!!
Thanks to all who made it happen

September 10, 2012 1:02 pm

Hobzey

lets all buy Phil some earplugs moany old git..ha.
Great stuff, very well organised. Would love this to go on later.

September 10, 2012 12:44 pm

Paul

Missed last years Croxfest due to a conflicting commitment, so was not sure what to expect.
But – WOW! – brilliant afternoon/evening of a whole mix of great music and fun for all the family.
Weather was fantastic and it was just so good to see the Green being used, appreciated and enjoyed by thousands of families – happy smiling faces all round.
My thanks to the Organisers, the Sponsors, the Bands, the Parish Council (thank you – please keep doing what you are doing!), the Croxley residents and the wonderful Volunteers who not only supported during the day itself, but the hard core group who were clearing the Green the next day so that by midday on Sunday it was spotless!
Looking forward to next year already.

September 10, 2012 11:21 am

steve

wow – what a brilliant day! Great day for the local community to enjoy. Well done to the organisors , all the volunteers, people who sponsored the day and the support from the Parish Council. Looking forward to Croxfest 2013!

September 10, 2012 11:01 am

Karen

Wonderful day for the community, as it brought families and friends of the village and surrounding areas together. The organisation was well thought through and everyone was in good spirits. Something for everyone.
Can it go on later next year to get more bands playing?

September 10, 2012 10:30 am

Pete

Another fantastic day on the Green enjoying Croxfest. Was a little worried that last year’s excellent day might not be matched, being the 1st one, but this year was just as fantastic.
Great bands, great people, great setting & great weather what more could you ask for.
Big thanks to all who organised this splendid event, & especially to all who volunteered to help the day go smoothly too 🙂

September 10, 2012 10:18 am

Bob

Brilliant day out on the Green. Fingers crossed the grumpies don’t spoil it for next year. They just need to chill a little and get a life. No one is going to die of a little music are they?

September 10, 2012 9:51 am

Catherine

Fantastic day, great to see everyone on the green having such a good time! All of the bands were excellent crowd pleasers. Would be wonderful to do it again next year! Thanks to all that organised and sponsored it, superb job!

September 10, 2012 3:11 am

Flutatious

Thank you again Croxfest for another amazing gig, wonderful crew and set up all round and cheers to Big Stu for the wonderful intro and to the great audience for making us feel so welcome. It is great to see so many people supporting local music, we wish you continued success and hope the council continue to support you with the festival, oh, we must also thank the lady behind the stage for the delicious lasagne, superb……

September 10, 2012 3:01 am

Jenny

Great! Better than last year. Would love to see it next year!

September 9, 2012 10:52 pm

Gem

Had a brilliant time at my first crox fest!!! Bands were a good variety! Wasnt too fond of the last band as they didn’t sing! Surprise alcohol was not on sale but good choice of food !! Weather mad the day even better Great day!

September 9, 2012 10:47 pm

Andy

What a top day!! Even better than last year – Croxley Rocks!! A big well done to all involved in making it happen. Some great bands and a good mix of music. A great family atmosphere, we had friends come and everyone loved it. Roll on 2013 – can we book the weather now?

September 9, 2012 9:34 pm

Zak

A well organised, fun and family friendly day out. Well done to everyone involved in bringing this event to Croxley. Roll on next year!!

September 9, 2012 9:28 pm

Ian

Great day, hope you can do it next year.

September 9, 2012 9:21 pm

Chris

My four-year old daughter watched Caution Horses and said “I want to do that, I want to do the singing.” Inspirational. A really friendly event on a lovely day. Maybe you need lollipop ladies/men for the main road. Minor point but that is probably the only negative thing I can say about a brilliant family day. Thank you all very much.

September 9, 2012 8:56 pm

Chris

Well organised, not much local food or stalls though and music seem a little louder than necessary

September 9, 2012 7:43 pm

mick

Second year and as good as the first,only complaint is the eight oclock finish,If the fairs go on until 10pm and the fireworks go off at midnight on new years eve why cant the music play longer.

September 9, 2012 7:18 pm

Kate

Even better than last year. Had a fantastic day. A great selection of bands, great food and great atmosphere.
I think that next year we could have merchandise, such as tee shirts, a programme, wrist bands, CDs of the performers available and we could actually make money for future events. I would happily put money into collection buckets if they were passed round and the people that I have spoken to feel the same.
Big thanks to all who helped put on an amazing day.

September 9, 2012 6:18 pm

Big Stu

Exhausted but thrilled!
After CroxFest’s maiden outing last year the standard had been set high.
Could 2012 be as good? Well it exceeded everyone’s expectations!
Mother nature played her part. Thank you.
More importantly was the army of volunteers, helpers, security, noise monitors, stewards, event organisers, web designers, printers, stage crew and if course the bands who all dedicated their FREE time to put on this FREE event for the people of Croxley & the surrounding areas.
I spoke to people that travelled miles to come back and visit their original home town to support the event.
Being a Croxley man, it was so nice to see so many familiar faces coming together with family and friends to make a day of it. Kids dancing with the adults, friends dancing with strangers, the whole day had the most amazing feel good factor.
A huge thank you to ALL the sponsers. Without them, this event just simply would not take place.
Make sure YOU show your support to the Croxley Green Parish Council for future funding.
I for one feel CroxFest deserves to be an annual event for many many years to come.
And if you want to join in next year, put your name down to help volunteer!
Fingers crossed for 2013!!

To Phil, I now know why this country is in such a state. The reason is selfish small minded people like you. 1 DAY A YEAR, thats it. After that its back to you…..

Had a great time up on the Green with all my friends yesterday. Great weather, fab atmosphere, loved the music. Big thank you to everyone that helped to put on Croxfest and made it happen. Looking forward to Croxfest 2013!

Had a great day on the Green, weather helped but would have been a great day anyway. Enjoyed all the bands, especially Wired and it was good to see a young local band being given a chance to open the festival. Email sent to council re continued funding. Thank you to all the organisers and volunteers for a superbly run day. See you all next year!

My only regret was why on earth didn’t I go last year as well?! Awesome day shared with my friends and the rest of the community that I am so grateful to be a part of, on our wonderful green that none of us probably use enough. Thank you so much to all involved, Croxfest was organised and delivered to perfection – please keep it running.

What. A. Day.
Fantastic. Just fantastic!
Glorious weather, excellent music, lovely atmosphere – what more could you want? Well perhaps a beer tent 😉
Got the sunburn and happy memories of Croxfest.

Loved it! Great organisation, bands, MC, atmosphere and fantastic weather for the second year running! Great to see most of croxley out there and all having a good time, really good event for all ages and a great way to use the green!

An absolutely brilliant day.. Was great to see how the audience had grown from last year’s Croxfest so quickly! Would’ve been better to seen some REALLY local catering establishments instead. But fantastic organisation from all involved & looking forward to next year. MORE Simply Vintage & less Caution Horses for me please 🙂 x

We have only just moved back to the area and really didn’t know what to expect or anyone however we had a lovely day and bumped into people we knew from years gone by which was a lovely way to welcome us to Croxley. My friends hired Wired for their wedding in Kent about 4 years ago so I knew the standard of bands would be good and there was something for everyone.
I am sorry for those who do not wish to take part or listen to the music but I hope the sense of community will become apparent to them and they will forgive an event which ends at 8pm!

What a fantastic day !!
Great bands, great weather, and very well organised.
Thanks to the organisers, sponsors, and all the others – security and medical, who gave up their time to make this event happen, The local council should be very grateful that they have these people working so hard, for free, to make the event a success, and to provide a celebratory day out for thousands of people, young and old, almost all of whom left the Green with smiles on their faces.
This is exactly the type of local event which helps to lift the spirits, especially in the tough times we are going through, and it’s difficult to put a price on that
Thanks again, and I really look forward to Croxfest next year. If the funding isn’t forthcoming, then shame on the council.

Loved it! A great event, good weather, thousands of local residents having a good time (all ages) and a fantastic feel-good atmosphere. A big thank you to the organising team for making it all happen. I guess those collecting for the good causes had a very good day too! Can’t wait for Croxfest 2013.

Flutatious were amazing again! Caution Horses were another band that we really enjoyed. have to say that the toilets were really good too. Thanks for putting on another really great croxfest

Out first time at Croxfest, was not aware it existed until i saw freinds posting on Facebook.
Really enjoyed the day, helped by the fab weather.
DJ tent required with local DJ’s. Could probably do with more loos as well over the other side of The field.
Will definitely come again next year, rally some friends together to make it a even more memorable day. This event is destined to grow…

You guys are soo good at organsing these things, you even sorted the weather. Another fantastic, fantastic day and a show case of “Our Green” and the community coming together. If the Parish Council needs a nudge … then that was well and truly it! Mark and the army of volunteers …. take a very big bow … you deserve it!

Had a fantastic afternoon at croxfest, so nive to see all the croxley residents having fun and enjoying the great music. Hope it carries on for years to come.

A fantastic day of music and sunshine with friends. Amazing village turnout and Flutatious were the perfect headline act.
I’d like to see more non-rock bands next year such as pop, folk and a little hip-hop to make it more diverse.
Great to see so many local businesses showing their support + thanks to all the volunteers.

September 8, 2012 9:01 pm

Helen

Fantastic day! I enjoyed the music, particularly the latter bands, but the best bit was the community atmosphere – as someone that lives on The Green it was great to see the space used by so many young families and local residents.
Thanks to all the helpers for their hard work – long may it continue.
I think a £2-3 charge for car parking would help contribute to running costs as would more collection buckets.

What a great family day. Thanks to everyone involved, see you next year I hope

the music was good but it was all rock and not enough pop music and the sound was too loud.. kinda death now;D but overall an amazing day

September 8, 2012 8:47 pm

Jane

enjoyed most of the music and great weather. However disappointed that the food stalls were not local businesses like last year so I did not buy anything. In my opinion croxfest should rethink who is allowed to sell food next year and keep it local

Lovely sunny day, great atmosphere and fantastic music!

What a way to spend a Saturday afternoon and evening. Croxley green puts Watford and Ricky to shame so much happens in a small village hopefully the same next year. All the bands were good. Many thanks to all envolved

The alalling noise of “musicians” who cannot play, and “vocalists” who cannot sing, is just as loud as last year. Your “promises” about control of noise were hollow. This event is on The Green – keep the noise on The Green.

Audree

Had a fantastic day – thanks. Will come back next year with an even bigger group and a better stocked coolbox.

Lets hope it is as good as last year. We’ve certainly got the weather for it!
