Dorchester Festival @ Dorchester-On-Thames Abbey
May 3 @ 9:00 am – May 12 @ 10:00 pm
Dorchester Festival @ Dorchester-On-Thames Abbey

One of Oxfordshire’s most imaginative events returns in May 2024 for a tenth year, and this time, in partnership with Restore! Dorchester on Thames Festival will take place across 10 days between 3rd and 12th May 2024 and welcomes over 3,000 people, offering a spectacular array of over 50 events.

There’s something for everyone – from world class performances of The Tallis Scholars and melodies of the BBC Elstree Concert Band, to the heart-pounding 100ft tower abseil, cookery workshops by top chefs, gift and food fair, and even a duck race! Restore will be adding its own activities focused on mental health and well-being.

The festival is entirely volunteer run, and gives all profits to charity, with proceeds in 2024 to be shared equally between Dorchester Abbey and Restore.

Save the date. Tickets released to purchase in 2024.
