VILLAGE ROCKS: Croxfest makes triumphant return after three years away (VIDEO)

 Published on: 4th September 2022   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Croxfest music festival returned to Croxley Green this weekend, which like many events around the country, hasn’t been held for the past three years.

From 12pm onwards, the free event was packed full of villagers who had missed the annual party, which annually sees local groups from all genres perform to the crowd.

The event also saw food and drink stalls, funfair rides and various other local shops and groups set up stalls.

We spoke to Stephen Crabtree, one of the event’s organisers. He said: “We are absolutely thrilled; we had a few years where we couldn’t do this, and now you can look and see a large early turnout already.

“There’s families out there, there’s people who are in their 70s and 80s, it’s just a wonderful day out, it’s brilliant.

“If you love music, if you like to have a smile on your face, if you love to dance and have a good day out, this is the place to go, no doubt.”

The festival carried on until 8pm, and despite some brief showers, the crowd enjoyed music from charity Electric Umbrella, Indie Choir, folk group In the Forest and alt-rock band Glassminds.
