Croxfest just keeps getting better. Loved it from start to finish!! A friendly atmosphere, it’s great to see young and old all enjoying a proper community event. Great bands, I particularly enjoyed The Imaginary Hat, Brocker and Our Friends Electric. A massive well done to all the organisers – can’t wait until next year!!

Been my fourth visit to croxfest. Great day out for all. Very well organised great groups and great music. I would and have highly recommended the event. Well done to all who participate and organise this great day.

Croxfest is a truly amazing event. All the planning, organising and running of the event carried out by all the unpaid volunteers for our community is beyond words. It’s events like this that keep the community spirit together. With it being free event it’s accessible for everyone and this is important especially in an era where everything has a price tag. Keep up the good work, everything you do is appreciated.


September 7, 2016 6:29 pm

Thank you. Every year it just gets better. From rhe very young to the fairly old (and all ages in-between it); CroxFest brings our community together for a fine end of summer celebration.
Great organisation and excellent crowd pleasing bands.
Thank you so much

Arnold our Dog loved his 1st Croxfest 🙂 and brought along his own camping chair for the day and after being some of the very first there to get our spot we stayed till all but the end in the rain .. What a fab day – great job with the organisation of the event and all of the Bands were fab ..we originally came to see The Ska faces but right from the opening act.. those fab young girls rocked it and all the acts throughout the day made it a great day to have a good old dance and a sing along to .. can’t wait for next year 🙂 Thank you CROXFEST 2016

What a fantastic day and evening! Despite the rain, we rocked ’til we dropped all day long!

Some great bands throughout the day! The highlight for us was the last band Delorean – seriously talented guys, but would have liked to hear them play for longer!

Thanks to everyone for making this day happen, we’ll be back next year come rain or shine!

What a fantastic family day. So well organised and the bands were brilliant. Dancing in the rain to friends electric – little grandson age 2 and granddad age 65. Highlight of the year and an annual outing. Thanks to everyone for making this great day possible and looking forward to many years of Croxfest to come. Xx

WHAT an event !!!!!! – BRILLIANT – my first time there and I LOVED every bit of it. The bands did their very best to entertain us. My mobility problems certainly did not STOP me from rocking/rolling in my chair. THREE CHEERS for the new entries, and hopefully NEXT year will be an IMMENSE pleasure as did this one. The ONLY complaint I have is that rain the stopped play – something quite out of our hands, otherwise I must compliment the staff on duty, the young cadets who conducted themselves very well in ensuring that the parking of cars went smoothly. To the parents who came with their children and took good care of them – it was so good to see the youngsters running around/some dancing – AND, a mention here of the well behaved dogs – the ones I saw were so well behaved and to their owners who ensured that their pets were on the lead, and I also saw some dogs were also muzzled. On the whole the event was INDEED very good. Hope to be there next year. I have read some of the comments below and these make good reading.

Great event….great organisation….roll on 2017!


September 5, 2016 5:51 pm

Another Brilliant Croxfest!!! Rain? what rain? Stayed to the end all the bands were fantastic but especially loved Our Friends Elecrtic and the ‘mighty’ DeLorean! Well done to everyone involved!! Roll on Croxfest 2017!!!


September 5, 2016 5:02 pm

Thanks to Andy and all the organisers for putting on such a fantastic and well organised event and giving The Wild Minds this valuable opportunity to play their first ever gig. A privilege for them to be a part of it.


September 5, 2016 4:01 pm

It was an absolute pleasure and privilege to play at Croxfest again this year …as always the crew were more than helpful, the crowd were wonderful (thanks to everyone who braved the downpours!) and the atmosphere was as electric as ever. Thank you and keep up the great work, everyone!


September 5, 2016 3:33 pm

Couldn’t actually attend as unwell but threw the windows open & listened to it that way! Brilliant stuff


September 5, 2016 3:30 pm

Great mix of music as ever and plenty of people enjoying themselves, despite the rain later on!
A brilliant local festival and long may it continue.

Thank you for inviting us ( The Ska Faces ) to play. What a great festival. Brilliantly organised and a great family day out. What a top crew who looked after us and made us feel very welcome. We had a brilliant time. Thanks to everyone who made it happen.

Darren (The Ska Faces)

Great day again. Superb organisation and great atmosphere. The quality and mix of the bands were top drawer. Long live Croxfest.

We had a great time! We came when our daughter was 1 a couple of years ago and this year took her and and our 1.5 yr old son. Both loved it! They love to dance, run around with no care in the world! A great family day out! Can’t wait for next year, thank you to all who help plan the event, participate in it (from the car park attendants to singers and everyone else).

September 5, 2016 1:31 pm

Such a good day….we use it as a get together for all our friends . I’ll definitely go next year


September 5, 2016 1:28 pm

Absolutely can cast this year…. just a shame about the weather.


September 5, 2016 1:24 pm

Our first time at Croxfest and we will definitely be back next year – a great family event, brilliantly organised and fab music from some very talented bands.


September 4, 2016 9:36 pm

Best one yet! The music was really good. Shame the weather did not stay dry. We had a brilliant time. We were a party of 12 including 3 children. We had a gazebo which helped but once the kids got wet we had to go. Thank you to all the organisers. Fantastic. Keeps getting better. It’s now on our must do every year list.

Mummy wrote this for me as I am 5:
I love the music, I had good fun dancing with my school friends.
I like the bouncy castle. I had my face painted with purple flowers… My favourite colour.
Mummy says we can go again next year and I can’t wait.
Going to practice my dance moves to be ready!!


September 4, 2016 7:03 pm

What another fantastic day at Croxfest. Such a shame about the weather but we held out until 5:15 but little ones started to get too cold and wet.
The music was awesome, the free bouncy castle was my 5 year olds favourite.
We have two young children and it was great to meet up with friends, the children headed to the stage to dance and play and we all enjoyed the great mix of music. Keep up the good work Croxfest. It’s so good to see the community come together, families and friends of young and old out enjoying time together in the fresh air and enjoy some decent music.
Can’t wait until next year!!!!!


September 4, 2016 7:01 pm

I grew up in Croxley Green, but i moved to Norfolk 8 years ago. This will be the third year i have travelled down especially for the Croxfest. I think what the organisers do is absolutely outstanding, it’s brings the whole community together, and thats what growing up in Croxley Green was all about, everyone knew everyone, we all looked out for each other, that is what i see every year i have attended the Croxfest, families coming together, the kids playing together (regardless of the rain,) and everyone was enjoying themselves, it was great to witness the community at its best. Well done Croxfest team, each and everyone of you are a credit to your community!! Keep up the good work, see you next year!!!!!
I think its an absolute shame that people feel they need to complain, it’s once a year and finishes at 8pm! Go to the theatre for the night, get out and enjoy yourself, life is too short to moan about the petty things in life!


September 4, 2016 6:53 pm

Another fantastic Croxfest despite the weather! Well done to all the bands especially The Wild Minds who considering their age and first performance have a bright future! A massive thank you to all behind the scenes who work tirelessly throughout the year to bring us such an amazing event! Looking forward to next year. P.S can we all pray for at least dry weather!

Never had been to Croxfest before So didn’t know what to expect. I thought being a free local festival the music would be mediocre how wrong was I.
The music was fantastic the organization was fantastic. Roll on 2017 looking forward to another great day.
Well done to everyone involved.

September 4, 2016 2:51 pm

Thanks to all you guys and girls for all the hard work you have done to stage this magnificent event . It gets better every year , great job done

Great event as always. Bands were brilliant – we especially liked Our Friends Electric and Delorean. Shame about the weather but we put up umbrellas and put on waterproofs and we were fine – that’s the British climate for you! We’ve been every year and our kids wouldn’t forgive us if we missed it – it’s always a great family day. Looking forward to next year!


September 4, 2016 11:44 am

As always, a really well organised professional family event. Great mix of quality bands. Thanks so much to all the volunteers who put in so much time over the past six years. Till next year, thanks so much!


September 4, 2016 11:41 am

I really enjoyed it! The music was fab and I stayed with the youth connexions stall at the back !


September 4, 2016 11:04 am

In spite of the weather Croxfest was a really fun day. Well organised with a great line up of bands. Glad so many people stayed thoughout the rain to support the acts.
Absolutely loved Our Friends Electric! Aswell as Ska Faces and Soul Enforcement Bureau.

Fantastic again! Thanks to everyone involved, it was an amazing event

Stayed all day, couldn’t have cared less about the rain! Long may Croxfest continue, here’s to 2017!


September 4, 2016 9:56 am

Thanks so much for having us at Croxfest! It was great to be part of such a brilliant, professional and well organised event. We were made to feel very welcome and treated to the best back-stage hospitality we’ve had all summer. Shame about the weather, but that’s the lottery of the English climate (rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling, down, down…). We hope to be asked to return in the future to do it all again! Dan (Our Friends Electric).

Yet again, what an amazing event! I managed to encourage three friends, one from Milton Keynes and two from North London to come down to Croxfest yesterday. Despite the rain, they all had a great time (as did I) and are all keen for more next year, so PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPEN AGAIN!!! I particularly enjoyed the set from “Brocker”, so keep up the good work and see you again in 2017

Today was the first Croxfest we’ve been to. I stumbled across it on the internet by chance. We were totally blown away by both the music and friendliness of everyone there. The rain didn’t matter, the organisation was spot on, we’ll be back next year with all our friends. Keep up the good work guys!!
