Fantastic. The line up has got better each year, well done! However it’s not just the music, it’s a great day for us all to get together. Thank you for an excellent day

The atmosphere of the day was amazing for both adults and children and there was something offered for everyone in the stalls. Everyone at the stalls were nice apart from one man on a stall who was rude to my eleven year old brother. However apart from the that, the rest of the day was a joy and the bands were amazing.

Fantastic! Yet again Croxfest improves on the previous year, been to all Croxfests and don’t plan on stopping.
Thank you to every single volunteer who helped make the day what it was, just brilliant!
Thank you to all the bands, great mix and top quality entertainment right down the order.
Thank you to all those who attended both from Croxley and those from outside the area by behaving impeccably and treating our village with respect.

The hours and hours of hard work by EVERYONE involved with CroxFest is worth every minute when we hear and read you massive support of the event.
We are all so proud of CroxFest but more importantly YOU for making the day what it is.
Without you we’d have an empty Green! The best CroxFest to date in my eyes.
Well done everyone.

I had the pleasure of playing Croxfest this year and what a fantastic experience it was. The sound was crystal clear and the whole event was highly organised from beginning to end. Lovely to see many people having a good time, all the bands were top notch. I would not hesitate to do it again, so much fun. Hats off to all involved, you’re hard work is really appreciated. Long may Croxfest continue.

Great Day brilliant music fantastic atmosphere.
Don’t ban dogs I brought my two well behaved dogs we had loads of kids stroking them this made to the family atmosphere they were on a lead or on their blanket they cause no-one any problem. If you have dogs off leads wandering I do agree this should not be allowed.

Croxfest was a roaring success again, as always. My family and I had a lovely day. It’s such a well-organised event with a fantastic atmosphere. I grew up in Croxley but have since moved away, I love bumping into people I haven’t seen for years. It’s also great to get the whole community out together and listening to some incredible local talent. Roll on Croxfest 2015.

The biggest bonus of all was the music – some great bands and dancing all afternoon – roll on next year’s Croxfest!

Mike

A brilliant, fun, community event. Long may Croxfest continue, delivering good live music and raising money for good causes. I believe there are one or two nimbys who have a problem with it….. please don’t let the party-spoilers ruin it for the thousands who support Croxfest.

September 9, 2014 9:21 am

Tracey

What a fab family, community event enjoyed by all ages from young children upwards. Lets hope TRDC finally recognise the value of such an event and support it going forward. I understand Β£2400 was raised for charity in addition to all the free activities provided. Well done to the sponsors and volunteers for making it possible.

September 8, 2014 11:36 pm

Heather

This was our second Croxfest, and a gang of us met up there to picnic, chat, enjoy the bands, the atmosphere, the safe family, dog and child friendly environment, and fabulous weather.
So well organised, great bands, excellent community led day out. Loved it, 2 day event next year?!!! Thank you for superb organisation, good toilets, recycling and great parking. Loved it see you next year!

September 8, 2014 10:50 pm

Andrew

Fantastic family friendly event, big thanks to the organisers.
Bring on Croxfest 2015 !

September 8, 2014 10:28 pm

James

Best Croxfest so far. Well organised. Lots of cover songs mixed with bands own stuff. Very family freindly. Only one critism, my children 15, 13 & 7 all complained not enough more modern music. Saying that definately back next year.

September 8, 2014 10:11 pm

Jo & Keith

Fantastic family friendly event. Extremely well organised – thank you to all the volunteers who make this event happen to the benefit of all the community. They should be congratulated for ensuring our community has such an asset to enjoy and raising funds for charity at the same time. Thank goodness they had the tenacity to battle their way through the bureaucracy of TRDC for the good of us all! Roll on Croxfest 2015!!

September 8, 2014 9:53 pm

clare

As usual an AMAZING event. This has to be allowed to continue.
Great bands, thousands of people from far and wide, Runaround Rascals were FANTASTIC free softplay, bouncy castle and face painting, those ladies deserve a medal. Great family event, great atmosphere, you cannot get better than this.

September 8, 2014 8:54 pm

Max

Hi, Saturday was our first visit to Croxfest so I can’t compare it to previous years, but I’ve been to lots of local music festivals so have something to compare the day to.
Croxfest has a great family vibe about it. It feels safe; there were lots of stewards there, a couple of PCSOs and I felt comfortable there with my kids. Lots of people enjoying a drink, but no groups of loud intimidating drunks, just a friendly atmosphere.
The music was varied, the sound system was clear and wasn’t too loud. Nice to see some really good talented musicians, a nice mix of originals and covers, and nothing offensive.
Well done guys.

September 8, 2014 8:43 pm

Mike

Fantastic day, already looking forward to next year!

September 8, 2014 8:38 pm

Sarah

So lucky to live in Croxley – what a brilliant community event! Thank you organisers & sponsors – my whole family … young & old … love it!!

September 8, 2014 8:09 pm

Trend & Thomas team sponsors of the Bouncy Castle & Croxfest temp tattoos!

This was our first experience as sponsors of the Bouncy Castle area at Croxfest and we enjoyed the experience so much! We were run off our feet applying temporary ‘We Love Croxfest’ tattoos to what seemed like half of WD3 but the energy of everyone involved, the super organising and the great community spirit it unfolds is a pleasure to be part of and we look forward already to 2015! We might just have a few more staff on hand to help out next year! πŸ™‚

Fab day enjoyed by people of all ages from tiny tots to people about to hit 100. Well organised and a great day out. It’s really nice to see such great community spirit in action. And its one of the many factors that makes.croxley great. Well done to the organisers. Same again next year….

Tim

First time I’ve attended croxfest and really enjoyed it. Saw a great mix of bands, who were all good. It was a brilliant way to introduce live music to my 2 young daughters. But more importantly it was a fantastic event for the whole community. Can’t wait for next year. Thanks for all your hard work.

September 8, 2014 6:20 pm

Abby

Congratulations to the team on organising another brilliant event!
I have to say, from both a visitor and a sponsor perspective – extremely impressed with how well managed the event is, both pre-event and on the day.
I sincerely hope Croxfest can continue for many years to come!

September 8, 2014 2:49 pm

Sarah

Fantastic gig to play at. The atmosphere is so welcoming and all the staff where extremely helpful and welcoming to my band. We all didn’t want to get off the stage! And the sound was perfect. Everything was so clear! Thanks for having us guys we really loved playing and we will be back next year to check out the bands you have picked πŸ™‚

September 8, 2014 2:47 pm

Sally

Another fabulous Croxfest, I don’t konw of any other free, well organised, family friendly music event that is run nearby (or at all). Incredible that it is free and run by volunteers, I’ve paid to go to less organised festivals. We were there from 4pm and saw the last four bands all of which were amazing. Such a fantastic atmosphere, especially at the end when the sun went down and the Informers took to the stage. Three Rivers should be thanking the organisors for making this end of summer event such a success for the whole local community. Well done everyone and please, please, please continue!

September 8, 2014 2:44 pm

Loraine

What a great day out for all the family, good weather and fantastic entertainment and a bit of fund raising too. If you had the opportunity to walk around you could see gazebos, picnics and several generations enjoying themselves together. Quite a lot of the public helped with rubbish collection at the end, which speaks volumes. Special thanks to all behind the scenes.

September 8, 2014 2:28 pm

Haylie

I came to the Croxfest with all my family and we all had an absolutely amazing time!!! We loved the music, the atmosphere, seeing lots of old faces and lots of friends! It was great for the community and getting all the people of croxley to come together! A great family day out! Xx

September 8, 2014 2:14 pm

Doulla

My 2nd Croxfest and very much enjoyed it. Lovely family event with great music. Well done to all and many thanks for the free water which was greatly appreciated, the free balloons and Runaround Rascals that kept our little ones entertained. Thanks for a great day, look forward to next year!

September 8, 2014 2:01 pm

Croxfest 2014 – What an amazing day, Great music, great company, great fun. Thanks very much to all the organisers & volunteers who make this wonderful family event happen for the rest of us. Lots of smiling faces to be seen and a great way to see the whole community enjoying themselves as, well, a community! not enough of that happens these days.
Please, please do not let one miserable kill joy ruin it for the rest of us. if you are reading this, and it really bothers you that much, go out for the day. It’s only 8 hours out of the whole year for goodness sake!!!
Roll on next year can’t wait!

Jonny

I have been to every croxfest, this one was the best! Well done to all involved, thank you for giving many people a wonderful day. Rock remedy – what a great band, but my mate Bob didn’t do badly with the Informers either!! I know licensing is difficult but a beer tent would be good…. πŸ˜‰

September 8, 2014 1:26 pm

Claire

A fantastic event, was so well organised, i saw police walking round the whole day so it was such a safe enviroment for all. It was a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, there were barriers all round so extra reassurance that children were especially safe, lots to do for kids, a great variety of food and stalls. It also gives local bands a great opertunity to play in an fantastic enviroment
It’s a shame that people feel they need to complain about such a positive community event, that is FREE, SAFE, finished promptly at 8pm, is cleaned up and The Green is back to how it was before, brings the community together and is just once a year!

September 8, 2014 1:22 pm

Paul T

Another fantastic Croxfest and well done again for booking the weather ! Looking forward to next year’s already.

Really well organised!

Warwick

First time playing at Croxfest but very impressed with the teamwork and attitude of all the backstage and support workers. Good planning and facilities, welcoming staff and competent crew. No wonder it’s so popular with the local people. An excellent, family-friendly festival.

September 8, 2014 11:28 am

Marlene

Thank you for a really great afternoon, we all had a great time. We were there with our disabled son and were really pleasantly surprised to have been approached by someone on the team to ask if there is anything that you could have done to make our day a bit easier. The two things we talked about mainly were the lack of privacy for changing and the difficulty in getting a wheelchair up on to the green from the Baldwins Lane end. Even without these, it didn’t spoil our day! Thank you.

September 8, 2014 11:27 am

Lisa

A really enjoyable day out for all the family. Plenty of room to set up your chairs, blankets, cool boxes and enjoy lots of great music for free. Plentiful, clean loo facilities, great food stalls and even a play area right at the back (away from the music) for the little ones. I’m from Nottingham but my in-laws are from Croxley, and I have to say – we don’t have anything like this at home. People are friendly, helpful and genuine – a real sense of community during the whole day. The volunteers & organizers did a cracking job. Thanks to them all, and of course the bands who made the music!
I hope that Croxfest continues for a long time. The music was NOT too loud and those protesting about it ought to try stepping outside their little bubble and joining in – they might just get a big surprise when they realise they’re enjoying themselves!!
Thank you Croxfest!

September 8, 2014 11:25 am

Melissa and Craig

Im still raving about the event to my friends and family that didnt go… they are stupid to miss such a great event!!!

Fantastic Event, lots of hard work and commitment put into this event by volunteers but it is truly evident on the day.

What a brilliant day!Croxfest just gets better & better…….Please don’t let a few grumpy people complaining about noise levels stop hundreds of people enjoying the hardwork of many. They should put headphones on if they don’t like it… I say turn it up! Thanks to all those involved in setting this up & packing it away. Can’t wait for next year , thank you.

What a brilliant afternoon we had. Superb Bands, great vibe and great to catch up with good friends. Came down from Suffolk for the day just for Croxfest with my kids. Looking forward to next year. The Informers were awesome as usual.

Zach

I have to say the event was fantastic, my family and I have moved to the Croxley 5 years ago, we’ve loved living here ever since, a real family feel. We went to Croxfest last year and had fun, this year, we invited friends from outside the area to come with us and made a day of it. We had a lovely picnic, listened to great music, we chatted and met loads of local people to Croxley and had a super day – our friends could not believe what a wonderful community vibe we have in Croxley! Thanks so much for all your effort to organise a super event, it’s really appreciated and here’s to many more years to come!

September 8, 2014 12:05 am

Jerry

Errm – “pub bands”! What does the Cassio moaner expect to see at a free local festival – Pink Floyd, Clapton, Rolling Stones, Kasabian? Or maybe, One Direction!!!?? Anyway, many of these ” pub musicians” could knock some bigger names into a cocked hat. I enjoyed the quality of the bands and the great sound system. A decent volume without keeping the sensitive ones awake during their afternoon snooze!! We could use a beer tent though!!

September 7, 2014 11:46 pm

Linda

A super day out meeting up with friends. Non-stop fun for all ages. Third year and hope it will continue. Such a friendly safe environment… we could relax and enjoy the show without worrying about our 8 year old. Bumped into old friends which made the day even better!! Keep up the good work and ignore the moaners – they’re the minority!

September 7, 2014 11:21 pm

Alannah

The organisers, volunteers & stewards did a great job. Noise didn’t bother anyone I know and I live close by! It was a lovely crowd, we saw no trouble and plenty of families enjoying themselves. Great standard of bands, Nameless Three and Rock Remedy were by far the best. I have been to all Croxfests and this one was the best by a long way. Thank you!

September 7, 2014 11:18 pm

Nick

It’s free, it’s fun, it’s a fabulous day out for adults and children of all ages. All I saw as 5000 people having a great time in a totally relaxed and trouble free environment. As long as the Green is returned to a pristine state afterwards, I don’t see the problem. To be frank, it is probably going to be cleaner afterwards that it would normally be. Why do people drop litter day in, day out? Anyway, well done to the organisers for a great event.

September 7, 2014 11:01 pm

Chris Lloyd

CROXFEST was a well organized event. I spoke to many people who wanted to see this event to go from strength to stremgth. I was told I missed the best band. Well done to everyone who made this a great community event. I left the London Double Header early to get back to Three Rivers for my first ever CROXFEST. Thank you to all the sponsors.

September 7, 2014 11:01 pm

We have been coming for at least 3 years. What a great event, thanks to the Carters and the Croxfest team for a great day out. We still follow Chasing Grace from last year and am sure others will follow in their footsteps to greater things. Loved the Swanvesta’s and fab to see local musicians in so many different bands and different roles aka Spike Webb! Keep it up and ban Mr Beattie :-))) Cheers.

September 7, 2014 10:32 pm

My first croxfest and amazed at the organisation! But mainly the sense of community that it brings something for this town to be proud of instead of all the negative publicity x such a well behaved crowd and great so see people collecting rubbish at the end! Long may it continue!!!

Great event, brilliant bands. Keep it going please

What a brilliant event – CroxFest was fantastic this year! It’s so well organised, we’re very impressed that it’s all run by volunteers. There was a great range of music for all tastes, and all ages in our group had a great day out – it gets better each year. We are very lucky to have such a great event for the community in Croxley – long may it continue.

Well done for putting on an amazing event. We really enjoyed ourselves and next year I will be telling all my friends to come along as I thought everything about it was fab.

September 7, 2014 9:32 pm

Abi

Once again Croxfest has been a huge success. A lovely, friendly atmosphere with no trouble. Bands were great, especially the Informers! The fact that it’s for everyone, even those with dogs and children is great. If I wasn’t allowed to bring my dog, we wouldn’t be able to come for the day from Bucks. This type if event would never happen in my village which is a terrible shame. I hope Croxfest continues for many years to come!

This was a lovely treat for the kids after being back at school, real community feel and plenty for everyone. Especially enjoyed the country band that were on and the rock band. Please say thank you to the red headed singer from the rock band who made my little one’s day by signing an autograph and chatting to them. They want to know if her band will be back next year, you have to or I’ll never heard the end of it!

September 7, 2014 9:28 pm

Kate

Another absolutely brilliant Croxfest best yet! Thank you to all involved setting up and taking down from start to finish so professional and yet again a truly family event! So good to see friends I haven’t seen for a few years! Loving seeing friends play on stage! Everyone was clearing up at the end just shows how people care about this event. Can’t wait for next year!

We came from Watford with our 1yr old daughter for our first Croxfest. We didn’t know what to expect, but arrived just before midday intending to stay an hour or two. We stayed until 4pm when we reluctantly had to leave to get our daughter home for tea etc. We had a fantastic time, enjoying the wide variety of music, browsing the stalls and meeting and chatting to people. Everybody we met was incredibly friendly and welcoming. Croxley is very lucky to have such a fantastic free event, and to have the community support to put on such an event. We do not have anything in Watford that compares. Well done Croxfest team! We loved it and hope to come next year!

too loud pub bands. Not very good

Had an excellent day with my young family and friends, the bands were great, the atmosphere was wonderful, have been every year and every year gets better. Thank you for organising it.

great day we all had a great time long my it continue thank you all for you hard work

September 7, 2014 8:35 pm

A great afternoon; thanks to all those involved in organising and running such a brilliant local music event. The atmosphere was relaxed, friendly and safe ( helped by a good balance between discrete and visible policing/stewarding ).
The bands were all a really good standard, with a wide range of genres to keep everyone happy. All of them had obviously worked hard on their sets which confirms that they respect the growing status of this event as much as their audience. Many thanks to them all.
Sorry to hear that there had been complaints about sound levels. To those unhappy with the event, I would say that it’s only one day a year, it’s a great focus for local ( and not so local ) families and it puts Croxley Green on the map for a positive reason.
Can’t wait to see the pictures from the drone – where are they being posted???

September 7, 2014 8:19 pm

Mike

Amazing day – great atmosphere perfect for us with 2 kids (6 and 8). Big thank you to all those amazing people volunteering to help and thank you of course to organisers and sponsors. ! Look forward to next years!

September 7, 2014 8:13 pm

CS

So impressed with what is offered at a local event, so family orientated and FREE!!
Amazing mix of music, family friendly, local talent and a lovely atmosphere.
It is so disappointing to hear of the noise complaints, I understand that things like this cause mixed feedback but it’s once a year! The complaints lead to Three Rivers staff having to check music levels every half hour to be able to report back on the levels. What a waste of money!!
There are so few events that are free and to such a high standard but remain to have a local feel. It’s lovely to see, and yes there are a few drunken people but it’s so well Policed and Stewards around that there is a safe and controlled feel. Alcohol is always an issue, however if your sensible you can enjoy your day.

September 7, 2014 7:49 pm

Kerry

Great time yesterday again as per previous years (although not so great today!!) Lovely friendly atmosphere and great to see so many people supporting the event. Thank you loads to all that organise, it is appreciated. Well done guys looking forward to next years. x

September 7, 2014 7:20 pm

Andy

First time I’d made it to the event (having come up from South London for it) and enjoyed it thoroughly. Was impressed by the provision of distractions for the kids up at the back, plus I enjoyed the community feel and the fact that as an event it was totally open. Also, because it finished relatively early, there was time to go and do other fun things later in the evening. Good work by all involved.

September 7, 2014 7:08 pm

Mrs.C

what a great atmosphere and family occasion- great band line up- excellent compere- brilliant helpers plus meeting Croxley folk or from surrounding villages- old school friends – neighbours- weather was just right- sucks boo to the one miserable complainant – by majority vote CROXFEST WILL STAY!!!!

September 7, 2014 7:07 pm

?

Well organised but they should do something in regards to alcohol! This is the second year my children have had to witness drunken behaviour from people mid afternoon. Last year my children also mid afternoon witnessed a drunken fuelled fight. Thought it might be a one off and once again this year There were unfortunately even by 4pm a few groups of adults who had too many, and not nice for children to see. Appreciate most people where not drinking to excess like this but only has to take a few groups of people to spoil it for others. next year they could ban alcohol from being taken in until a certain time so more family friendly up until a certain time?

September 7, 2014 6:57 pm

Cathy

We are so lucky to have this fantastic event for free, on our doorstep. The first weekend in September is a perfect time for people to get together as most families are around as the children have just gone back to school, and the weather is often kind. The event is always well organised.
It would be great if it started and finished a little later – say 1.30 – 9.30 pm. I do appreciate that there is clearing up to be done, but it is so much more atmospheric to hear the music as it is going dark. And I do live very close to the event. I do not think finishing at 9.30 would cause offence to my neighbours. The noise levels were totally acceptable. It is great that it is growing in popularity every year. Well done.
Thank you

September 7, 2014 6:56 pm

Susan

First time for me this year and it was well worth the drive from Kent! Lovely to see so many people of different ages having fun rocking out. We walked up from Rousebarn Lane and couldn’t hear any music until we had reached Little Green School and then only just. I just feel sorry for the haters that they don’t enjoy good live music, a boogie and mingling with the community. I will definitely make a date in the diary for next year. Come on Three Rivers, take note of the majority and offer ear plugs to the moaning few!

September 7, 2014 6:30 pm

Tim

A big thank you to everyone who helped make this event possible. As a performer on the day, it was by far the most enjoyable gig I have played at – the sound technicians and backstage crew were so slick, so a big thanks to them. Hope it will continue again next year, and it would be great to see more up and coming local bands given the opportunity to perform as has been the case in previous years. A real quality event.

September 7, 2014 6:20 pm

Siobhan

I attended Croxfest for the first time with friends and we had a fantastic time. It was great to sit out and enjoy the music and the kids loved the bouncy castles. We’re all looking forward to next year’s!

September 7, 2014 6:15 pm

BeadyBubb

Had an absolutely amazing day with my daughter. It was such a well organised event by a friendly welcoming team. Everywhere i looked people were having a great day with their friends and family. I was so impressed that the event finished at the time it promised and how quickly the team cleared up the area. A fab mixture of bands, especially enjoyed The Nameless Three and The Informers. Croxley Green is so lucky to have this event once a year, and the fact it is free is fabulous!!!! Was proud to be part of this event,a huge thank you to all the team for having me, am already looking forward to returning next year.x.

September 7, 2014 5:42 pm

Duncan

Each year Croxfest gets better! Great selection of bands, we loved the Swanvesta Social Club and the Nameless Three particularly. Wonderful atmosphere, excellent organisation and a good selection of food. A credit to Croxley!

September 7, 2014 5:37 pm

Kat

As usual another fantastic family friendly day. The kids and the adults had a great time. Well done to all the bands, organisers, volunteers etc. We will look forward to next year. Such a brilliant local event. Thank you Croxfest!

September 7, 2014 5:36 pm

Gail

Gets better every year. Thanks to everyone who helps make it so good.
Enjoyed the tribute to Mr beattie!
Extra thanks to the kind person who handed in my Keys after my husband dropped them!

September 7, 2014 5:24 pm

Tom

My first Croxfest, but definitely don’t intend it being my last!!
Although I was mostly with groups of adults (although not necessarily “grown-ups”!), there was an excellent family atmosphere, in what felt like a very safe environment.
All the bands were REALLY good, providing a refreshingly wide choice of high-quality music, and the sound quality for an open air event was just amazing – well done, and a big “THANK YOU”, to EVERYONE involved in making this happen, long may it continue!!!

September 7, 2014 4:37 pm

Riqui

My first Croxfest and both I and my three yr old had a brilliant time! Extremely well organised, plenty to do and see for the whole family, and a great fun relaxed atmosphere. Was very impressed and can’t wait to spread the word and come back next year bringing lots more people! Thanks a million and congrats to all the organisers you done good! x

September 7, 2014 4:36 pm

Jo

Croxfest is one of the local events that we always look forward to as a family, always enjoy and this year was no exception. The volunteers did a great job, it was very well organised and the bands were great. It is a real community event and you are guaranteed to spend a good part of the afternoon bumping into friends and neighbours and having a chat, sharing a drink, picnicking, dancing and playing with the kids. Our group ranged in age from toddlers to pensioners and a good time was had by all. Already looking forward to next year!

September 7, 2014 4:34 pm

Russ

Great event, great friendly atmosphere, bit quieter than last year?

September 7, 2014 4:18 pm

Brilliant day with friends and family!! Thanks

September 7, 2014 4:05 pm

Martin

As usual, lots of families showing what great community spirit Croxley Green has.
A good selection of bands and the size of the crowd says it all.
Well done.

September 7, 2014 3:58 pm

Natalie

We come to Croxfest every year, this year was the best ever. So well supported and a fantastic day for all the family. The team who organise it all do an amazing job, there is no mess left and they make sure the event finishes promptly at 8pm so as not to upset the neighbours. A wonderful annual event that is hugely attended and enjoyed by the whole community.

September 7, 2014 3:52 pm

Adi

Mega thanks to everyone’s hard work in making this the best Croxfest yet! Top notch on every account, the only thing I’d change would be making it last longer!!
Long live Croxfest!

Another excellent day. Felt it was even better than last year and everybody seemed to be having a wonderful time. It’s a great community event with the whole family catered for. Well done and here’s to next year!

September 7, 2014 3:36 pm

Fran

This was my first visit to Croxfest and I was not disapointed. I arrived around 2.30pm so did not get to see all the bands but the ones that I did see were brilliant and there definitely was a family atmosphere. Will be back next year.

September 7, 2014 3:19 pm

Nicola

Thanks again for a brilliantly organised and well run community event . Great music enjoyed by all ages . We have attended every year & look forward to it continuing .

September 7, 2014 3:06 pm

Karen

The best croxfest yet! Music, stalls, atmosphere was brillant! We’ve young kids and they were up dancing And clapping along! Was lovely to see such family, community feel. Not many places have that but croxley definitely does. We had friends over and they could not believe it was free and what a community we live in!
We live on kenilworth and could hear the music from our house but we loved that!!!!!!!! X

September 7, 2014 2:51 pm

kay

my first croxfest and i had a great day /night , bands were good facilities were good and the atmosphere was fantastic….. cant wait till next year …

September 7, 2014 2:46 pm

Charlotte

What a wonderful day and the best we’ve been to. Well organised,safe and with a toddler it was great to have the soft play area and bouncy castles. The music was varied and it was fantastic to feel community spirit at its best.
Thank you to the organisers and well done for providing wrist bands for the children.

September 7, 2014 2:35 pm

Marvin

What a fantastic event. Really positive for all of the community. I am sure the event will go from strength to strength in years to come.

September 7, 2014 2:24 pm

Francis

Great community event, lovely way to spend an afternoon with family and friends

September 7, 2014 2:12 pm

Geoff

Best Croxfest yet! Great choice of bands this year, especially the last 5. People just want to hear “good time” songs played well and you certainly delivered this year. Fantastic organisation as always guys. Hope to see many more Croxfests in the future, well done to everyone concerned.

September 7, 2014 2:10 pm

Scott

People complaining about this event need to go find a hobby!
If they went to Croxfest and experienced the joy, togetherness and community spirit it brings to young and old they would realise that it has too many positives to outweigh the little bit of noise it brings until 8pm.
The local businesses who provide food and drink and local shops on the walk to the green benefit from the community day.
It’s lovely to see families, friends of young and old and near and far come together and enjoy a day all together. Life is so busy nowadays to have a chilled day, in the sunshine, enjoying local talent just shows how we need more events like this.
Maybe in Cassiobury Park sometime too πŸ˜‰

September 7, 2014 2:02 pm

Lizzie

Love love love CROXFEST!
What a great day!
Hard work and commitment to it paid off, thank you for making a nice day a fantastic and memorable day πŸ˜€

September 7, 2014 1:59 pm

Jessi

What an absolutely superb day, I loved every minute of it.
Fantastic music, great community spirit and what should be the lead of the future for any other local community events in the area.
The hard work put into organising the event is evident from how well the day runs, the quick change around in between bands is super and the hard work and dedication pays off to what can only be seen as the best local event day in the whole of Hertfordshire.
Keep it going!
I can’t believe that there is someone who complains about the music, it’s a once a year family fun day. They need to really get a life. They live on what’s such a busy green with the revels, the classics, two pubs and so much passing traffic. Let Croxfest continue without the local complaints!!!!!

September 7, 2014 1:58 pm

Vicki

Great fun once again! Thanks to all who helped make it such a good event !

September 7, 2014 1:36 pm

Jan

I had a fantastic day at Croxfest. It was very well organised and obviously this was due to the many volunteers who helped this event to take place. We were so lucky to be entertained by ten fabulous bands. Everyone enjoyed themselves including the children who were dancing and clapping along with their families and friends. A great family day out. I can’t wait for the next one and hope that it will become an annual event for many years to come. Thanks for a most enjoyable day!!

September 7, 2014 1:30 pm

Croxfest rocks! Another fantastic year and another success! It’s so wonderful to have a community event that brings together all ages! Everywhere I looked I saw smiley faces! Fantastic and long may it continue!

A brilliant day!! Something for everyone and wonderful to meet so many families. We celebrated our daughters 6th birthday there and had a fabulous time. Amazing organisation and efforts, this is what living in Croxley is all about, roll on next year………

Great family day – our group’s ages ranged from 3 to 63 and all enjoyed the music and atmosphere. Huge thank you to all involved. Roll on next year!

Baz

Got there after work in time to watch rock remedy wow what an amazing band. I went to the horns to watch them after too. I think they should have been the last act on. although the band after were good, rock remedy were better and got more people rocking out. Lots of people moaning about the noise, there will always be haters but it’s one afternoon a year and finished by 8pm, don’t stop our fun!

September 7, 2014 12:22 pm

Magda

We had a brilliant time at Croxfest, this is our 3rd year and it was definitely the best. I loved all the bands, great that there was a good mix of music and songs that everyone would know and be able to sing along to but without it being like a great big karaoke session. Our daughter (9) and her friends had a fab time too, they are already planning their pick and mix for next year. Clean, safe and fun – many thanks

September 7, 2014 12:18 pm

Julia

Fantastic day ! Thank you all for organising it it is appreciated. Great community spirit. Favourite band Rock remedy ! Such a Shame it can’t go on til 10. Think we need a few hippy stalls to make it true festival ! Great event can’t wait til next year ! Thank you xxx

September 7, 2014 12:08 pm

Great event, a good addition to the varied croxley calendar.

September 7, 2014 12:04 pm

Martyn

It was great to be part of Croxfest 2014. I’ve been there every year it’s been on and I intend to support it for many years to come. In my opinion this should be a regular annual event on the calendar and it’s also a great way to showcase up-and-coming local bands. Well done Big Stu!

September 7, 2014 12:02 pm

Rebecca

Another fabulous Croxfest, thank you organisers, helpers and volunteers for your amazing hard work, our community really appriciates all you do to host this event,
May it continue – what a lovely village family day, thank you.

September 7, 2014 11:58 am

Len

Another great family friendly (& safe) event!!!!! A very enjoyable afternoon/evening with friends. Great music, which I thought was just right. If you wanted it at it’s loudest, you stood right at the front. If you wanted to chat and listen to music, you sat a little further back! We had toddlers and small babies within our group and we weren’t at all worried about them with the music. I live 10 minutes walk from the green, and was right on the green before I could hear anything. So for something that’s once a year and done by 8pm, I feel that if it’s not your cup of tea, go out for the afternoon and enjoy yourself rather than complaining and feeling sorry for yourself. It’s a great community event, let’s support our community.
Croxley organise lots of fun events for ALL ages, come along and show your support!!!

September 7, 2014 11:53 am

Essie

I too live in Grove Crescent.. music could be heard clearly but I’m GLAD of that as I couldn’t go. Some people complaining really need to get a life.. do they complain about the noisy, stinking fairs that happen on The Green til much later plus fireworks? Or the fireworks that go on for 20+ minutes at New Year?
Sounds like the majority of Croxley had a great time… looking forward to next year πŸ™‚

September 7, 2014 11:52 am

Chris Paton

Playing with the Swanvesta Social Club what a well organised fun family festival. Great to see everyone out dancing laughing and having fun! Who do I put as favourite band? Us I suppose for loyalty but enjoyed the variety all good bands and different styles -Nameless Three and Sonny were great

September 7, 2014 11:47 am

Therese

Wonderful opportunity to spend time with great friends – lovely atmosphere, good music.
Very well organised. Thank you!

September 7, 2014 11:47 am

Karen

Excellent family day! Haven’t been able to make it before but glad we could this year. Well organised parking was a bonus. Great fun had by all ages and an opportunity to meet and chat with people I hadn’t seen in a while. I love a festival and this was a wonderful way to close the summer barefoot and dancing. I would suggest having a beer and wine tent though in true festival style and don’t think it would cause a problem as it finishes early. Great day and will definitely be coming again next year x

September 7, 2014 11:44 am

Jackie

Our first time to Croxfest and totally impressed. Fantastic atmosphere, no trouble, great music. Lovely to see generations of families together having fun and partying. Looking forward to next year!

We moved here this year as we knew all the brilliant things that go on in the village, well you didn’t let us down, it was well organised,well set up and the bands and the stalls were brilliant and we can’t wait for next year,the weather even smilled on you.The bands were varied and appealed to all tastes,a real family event WELL DONE to all who gave up their time to make it work ,true community spirit – be proud Croxley

September 7, 2014 11:35 am

Ann

As always Croxfest is an occasion where the community comes together, old and young. Atmosphere was chilled and relaxed. I like that you can take your own food and drink. Didn’t see anyone acting badly. Just lots of smiling happy faces. This year I even managed to park on the green. Just a shame it has to finish at 8. None of us wanted to leave. Looking forward to the next one πŸ™‚

What a fantastic day! Brilliant bands, wonderful atmosphere – and most importantly, thousands of happy faces. Well done to the Croxfest committee and volunteers who work so hard and enthusiastically all year to make this event happen – you’re a credit to the community.
To the complainers – you’re magnificently outnumbered and so you should be.
Can’t wait for next year!

September 7, 2014 11:31 am

Carrie, George & Cadence

We all had a brilliant time. Thank you Croxfest, for putting on this brilliant free event. Can’t wait for next years!
Loved the bouncy castle, it helped to keep our little one entertained. Good choice of food stalls on offer.
Bands that we saw were very good, but we only stayed for half of the day as little one was tired.
Volunteers were all super friendly and helpful. Can’t ask for more. Well done to all involved πŸ™‚

September 7, 2014 11:29 am

Another fantastic event. Thank you to all of you who
plan, organise and work so hard on the day.
It is much appreciated. It’s great that such an event
can be put in locally and all for free. Long may it continue.

Great day again. Event was well organised. Weather good. Music enjoyable, although harder to hear where we were sat – nearer the back. Look forward to next years!

Another fantastic Croxfest! As a resident of Croxley I am so happy & proud that we have this winderful, friendly , fun and safe event in our community! Thanks again to all who helped run Croxfest! And long may it continue.

Pammy Walsh

In life there will always be “the person” who finds something to complain about in anything, not matter how small. I think (personally), the sound could’ve been turned up a notch or two. An event that happens once a year and reaches it’s conclusion by 8pm should not need to bow down to these difficult party poopers.
Croxfest is an asset. Something we should all get out and enjoy.
For those who don’t enjoy the music, go out for one day a year. Simple.

September 7, 2014 11:12 am

Niki

Yet again, another great family event for the whole community. I have been to all so far and they keep getting better and better. It’s so nice to see so many people of such varied ages having a good time together in this world where violence and crime seem to be the only thing that gets people talking. A massive well done to all those who volunteered their time to make this such a sucess. May it long continue.

September 7, 2014 11:12 am

Thank you to all the volunteers and community stalls. Please let this great event continue for many more years, it’s a credit to the village.

I had such a wonderful time at Croxfest and it really brings together the community spirit. I know there have been some issues around noise but I Was sitting about half way through the crowd and could talk, at a pleasant level, to my friends and family. I felt it was organised really well and brought together lots of families and friends from all over Croxley Green, well done everyone.

September 7, 2014 11:08 am

Amazing day!! Once again a fab family day from start to finish. Well done to everyone involved.

Annette

A fantastic, well organised community event! Lovely friendly atmosphere, no trouble and great music! By far the best community event of the year – well done to the dedicated organisers. Let’s hope that those who give permission for this fantastic event to take place can see past the few moaning Minnies who, sadly, instead of coming up to the green to join in with the fun and laughter, choose to spend a beautiful Saturday afternoon straining their sad old ears to see if they can hear music from their houses. Seriously – one afternoon a year? Go shopping or visit family – it’s all finished by 8pm. I live 10 minutes walk from the green and when we walked up we heard nothing until we reached the green itself. A fantastic community event for all ages! Long may it continue.

September 7, 2014 11:06 am

Ann

Had a great time, fab music, stalls & it seems to be a very successful community event as hundreds there, young & old! Always going to get the odd complaint but it’s once a year 12-8pm!!! Keep up the good work & I hope it continues every year!

September 7, 2014 11:05 am

What a brilliant day really good music sitting in a field in the sun with lovely people. You just can’t beat it. Thankyou to all who work so hard to achieve such a good day xxx

I love the Croxfest, been to them all. Without a doubt it’s the best community event in Croxley, young and old all really enjoying themselves and never any trouble. Well done to the organisers and already looking forward to next years event.

What a great day, everybody had a wonderful day as in previous years. Whatever happens this should continue, don’t let the one ‘Victor Meldrew’ spoil this marvelous event!!

Fabulous, possibly the best yet, lovely to see so many families out enjoying the music, great atmosphere! Looking forward to next year, thanks Croxfest Crew!
p.s. too hard to choose just one favourite band, but Rocking Furys, Swan Vesta, Rock Remedy and the Informers were amongst my favourites πŸ™‚

Croxfest is one of the reasons that Croxley is such a fantastic place to live. The whole of Croxley having fun together, a lot of people working hard to make sure the community benefit from such fantastic events. Well done and a huge thank you to you all..

Had a great day at Croxfest. The music was great and I love the fact that it brings our community together on the green. These events are what makes Croxley such a nice place to live. Well done to the event organisers. I’m looking forward to next year!

I have been to all so far and they keep getting better. thank you to all the event organisers and volunteers who make it such a success. great music again and fingers crossed it will go ahead next year. my fave bit was when walking in with my nearly 2 year old I saw a group of 70+ year olds in camping chairs eating sausage and chips and drinking wine. it goes to show this event appeals to all ages.

Great day, great atmosphere. Looking forward to next year!

Another fantastic day – well done guys – a must event in my calendar every year!!

Due to other commitments was only able to get to the the last couple of hours this year so whilst I can’t comment on the earlier bands I can say the both Rock Remedy and The Informers perfectly matched the scene I discovered on my arrival. The whole green was in absolute party mood with more dancing than previous years and everyone I spoke to just said what a great day it had been. As ever well done to the organisers and local councils please take note of a great community event that should supported and encouraged – how many other villages could even dream of an event like this?

Great fun, well done to all the organisers for your hard work!
Thanks

Brilliant day, so well organised. Thank you so much – you even ordered the weather for us! Great variety of stalls, food & drink. All the bands were great but Rock Remedy were a particular stand out for me, a very tight bunch of players with a great sound – they really got the dancing going. Lovely festival with a great atmosphere. Here’s to the next one!

First time I’ve been able to stay until the end with the kids. Love the perfect balance for families – great atmosphere, stalls and just lovely. Thank you so much, looking forward to next year already πŸ™‚

Excellent day out. Friendly atmosphere and the free balloons and bubbles kept the toddlers occupied for ages! Great to see people of all ages attending and whole families. This really sets it apart from most festivals. Bouncy castles a very welcome feature, as was the toddler play area.
Liked the varied mix of genres, something for everyone. Heart radio between the bands worked very well. I particularly liked The Nameless Three – opening with Fresh Prince was a stroke of genius!! Bought their CD and would love to see them back again.
As a recycling fanatic it was great to see on-site recycling bins. No need for free bottled water to be given out though – greener to just fill up a reusable container / old bottle at home to minimise waste. Would be good to add signs on the large rubbish bins saying don’t put recyclable materials in there – easy to not realise there are separate recycling bins otherwise (especially when later in the day when it gets very busy).
Impeccably well run. Good parking system. So hard to pull something like this off these days, a credit to the community. Could only hear the music once on the green – nothing audible outside in north Croxley. Well done to all the volunteers, bands and sponsors.

First time I’ve made it to croxfest, always been away before!
Great bands, lovely atmosphere, lovely organisers πŸ™‚
It’s an excellent way to give youngsters a first taste of live music, see what real music is like and give them the desire to perform.
Keep up the good work chaps, looking forward to next year already.

I live less that 1/2 a mile away in Grove Crescent and we couldn’t hear it from where I live. I went down there about 4.30 and stayed until 7.30 with my grandchildren. We had a fabulous time. The music was great, it was very well organised, very family focused with people of all ages. I’ve lived in Croxley Green all of my life (53 years) and for me Croxfest is by far Croxley’s best annual event. It gets better every year. The bands were excellent.
Thanks to the organisers who did a fantastic job…looking forward to next year

What a fab day – even better than last year. The whole day was a great success. Lots of hard work and organisation from volunteers who have given up lots of their free time to make it such a special day. The bands were excellent and it was lovely seeing people of all ages having such a fun time. I can’t understand why people have complained about the noise. If they bothered to make an effort and come to Croxfest they would see what pleasure it brings to the community. I can only conclude they have nothing better to do with their time than moan.

What a great day. Loved the variety of bands. Would like to say a big thank you to those who work really hard to make this happen and to the many volunteers that worked so hard today xx

What a fantastic day. We’ve been to every year so far and always have a great time. We have two young children and they love hearing the bands and playing with their friends. Great stalls, great bands thank you so much for organising such a great event!

What a fantastic afternoon. Great community feel, lovely atmosphere. Enjoyed with family including 3 young children. Music was a perfect level for me although my husband says it wasn’t loud enough!! Bands were great, loved the stalls and catering. We could not hear the music from our house near croxley station. Don’t know why people complain it’s one day a year and it’s finished by 8pm.
Can’t wait for next year. Well done to everyone involved!

Love Croxfest. It is such a great family day and enjoyed by my whole family. Thank you.

My childhood and my Dads childhood is Croxley Green. I have the best memories of this wonderful village. The place, the schools, my friends made me the person I am today and I thank them. Today and every croxfest is about family,friends, children and great music and what a great community it is. Every Croxfest has been a major success and I would like to personally thank the organisers for their hard work. One thing I would like to say is that the person who opposes the music and event obviously has no idea what community spirit is all about and should really take a moment to think of others and not themselves. Life is too short so let’s embrace every moment. Be lucky and Stay happy Jules xxxx

noisy can be heard from Watford. There are better festivals that do not showcase pub/function bands.

You can be heard inddors on Chorleywood road in Ricky. So glad it finishes at 8.

I’d like to complain. I live about a kilometre away from the site and can’t hear a thing. I thought there was a rock festival on today! Looks like I’m going to have to come up to the Green to have a look for myself.
