This was the first time my dad and I attended Croxfest and it was absolutely phenomenal! I’m not particularly one for events like this, but this time I thought ‘why not?’ We both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, enjoying the bands, chilling out and (in my dad’s case) taking really fantastic pictures of the bands.

From what I saw it was incredibly well organised, with stalls, marquees and even first aid that were definitely well advertised to the attendees. All the food stalls had classic delicious funfair food too!

The bands themselves were absolutely amazing, I honestly loved all of their unique music and style- I may also have new favourite bands to follow as well! I’d love to see them back next year 🙂

Thoroughly enjoyable day out. Sound quality was exceptional, with a strong line-up of bands. I would – and have – recommended it to anyone. A very well run fun event. Roll on next year.

My 2nd year at this excellent community event. I come from outside the area (Pinner), but am thankfull to see some great bands of a great diversity. Happy to contribute to a great occasion but disappointed there wouldn’t really be a way to enforce this as I feel just a couple of pounds from everyone would make a massive difference. Keep up the good work and thankyou!!

Our party of four throughly enjoyed the Festival, the bands were amazing, didn’t realise we had so much local talent ! Everyone attending was all on good form with no trouble whatsoever and there was plenty of stalls to purchase food from. All the crew did an amazing job. A must go to event; roll on next year

Fab festival. Great range of bands and well spaced apart. Loved Codename Colin. Really lovely lively atmosphere.
Good amount of bins and recycling.
More veggie friendly stalls would be great.
Impressed with the efforts to tackle litter BUT incredibly disappointed and annoyed to see the silly string on sale which ended up covering so much of the floor!! This is plastic string which is then going to stay in the environment and should never have been allowed to be on sale as there was no way all of it was picked up. Please ban next year.

We had a wonderful time. Love how it appeals to people of all ages and fosters a genuine community spirit. The range of food stalls was excellent, there were activities for kids and such a relaxed atmosphere. Really enjoyed the music and even had a little boogie. Thank you to everyone involved. Looking forward to next year already.

I must have missed the greasy chips, I was too busy tucking in to the Caribbean food, I noticed the wood fired pizza, noodles, and German sausages too-such a varied selection of food at a relatively small festival. Well done

Within minutes of arriving my 3 year old had run off, without a phone number wrist band. I informed a young man with a collection bucket, near the bouncy castle, who ensured that the wristband tent knew. Luckily my son saw a marked vehicle and told them he was lost, St John’s, and they were amazing, thank you. Everyone was amazing. Sometime later a Police man approached me to check I was his mother, as they had not been informed and told me that there was no way of them being informed unless I told the Police. I didn’t mind being asked as it gave me confidence that my son was being looked for and looked after. A very positive outcome to a stressful situation. Could I just constructively suggest that all agencies have a reporting system so the search stops appropriately and resources aren’t wasted.

A wrist band was put on as soon as we were reunited, as I wasn’t aware of it before, and going forward it will be the first thing I do in the future!

Thank you for a wonderful event.

It was our first ever festival (aged 65 & 76) and we will certainly be back next year. The music was great as was the atmosphere. Great day all round. Thank you all who organised this and participated.

Yes I have one

Whilst I appreciate money has to be made to cover costs, the amount charged for small local businesses was astronomical.
Although my food stall wasn’t wanted (such a shame as it would have made a great alternative to greasy chips and lots of sweets) I couldn’t have afforded it anyway as a small, one person business. This is a huge shame to local, community businesses that Croxfest could really support.
Same with duplicating face painting etc. These people have these stalls as a business, it’s their livelihood but allowing replications isn’t fair. Whilst it’s not bad for the consumer, these businesses need to know in advance to be able to make a decision.
Otherwise it is a fab day out for family and friends (when the weather is good!) and I can only see it getting bigger (with proper management).

What an amazing day, thank you for everyone who put so much effort into organising what was a fantastic day.
It’s lovely to see everyone come together, all ages and celebrate the local talent.
The event was a lovely event in which I could take my children, my mum and friends to and spend the day all together.
It was a well organised, family friendly, safe environment and the hard work and effort was clearly evident. Thank you Croxfest. Here’s to 2019!!!

Croxfest 2018 was a fantastic event. Something like that does not come together without a great deal of effort behind the scenes. It was extremely well organised and well run. A good variety of food and activities were available and a variety of music styles too. The volunteers all deserve immense credit. The stage crew were magnificent – utterly professional and incredibly helpful. It was a magical experience – and a great honour – to play for the enormous crowd. We absolutely loved it. A huge thank you to everyone who was involved in making the eighth year of Croxfest such a stand-out success. You guys are total heroes.

Brilliant afternoon, great bands, great sound great staff, plenty of food, plenty of bins, well organised parking and all for free, what’s not to like. I came last year for the first time and New Device were my favourite, I’ve subsequently bought 3 of their albums. Overall I thought the bands were better this year than last, well done all involved, see you next year.

Thank you so much to everyone behind this amazing event. All of the crew were really chilled and nice to us on the day. Playing at Croxfest was one of our most unforgettable experiences of our lives and we loved every moment we were on stage. It was great to see so many people there, thank you for the overwhelming support. Long live Croxfest.

We were there from 2 – 7.30, watched some great bands! The kids and my mum enjoyed it too, thanks for lending her a chair! If it’s possible, it was even better than last year!

Great day as ever. Great that you give a chance to the younger bands and they never let you down. Very enjoyable event with friends and family, good music, good company in a very relaxed atmosphere. The organisation is amazing. Thanks to all the volunteers and organisers. Long live Croxfest!

What a fantastic day we had at the croxfest.
It was a unique event, which was family friendly at the same time nearer the stage it had a cool edgy old Skool feel to it.
The fact that it finishes at 8pm gives it a unique all day feel.
Can’t wait for next years!

Fantastic, as always! Thanks to all the people who made it possible.
