Fairport's Cropredy Convention - 2008!
The fields of Cropredy have now grown back as is evident from the photograph taken this morning by Gareth Williams from the 'bar'. Nearly all traces of the festival have disappeared and there are animals back grazing on most of the campsites.
Jayne Matthews and her team did an astonishing job with the post-festival clean-up and all the landowners have commented on it. Thanks Jayne!
And so we must turn our attention to Fairport's Cropredy Convention - 2008. We are pleased to announce that the dates for next year's festival are 7-9 August. More...

Cropredy Survey Results!
Our audience survey at Fairport's Cropredy Convention was very successful.
We were pretty sure we could trust the Cropredy crowd to come up trumps - and, by goodness, you didn't disappoint us! Roughly one in five of you filled in our survey forms - that is the sort of response most market researchers only dream of! So give yourselves a hearty pat on the back, Cropredy-goers: as always, you did us proud.
As part of the survey, we ran a free prize draw and six names were drawn at random from the completed forms. The winner is Anne Desborough of Southampton. It was Anne's first visit to Cropredy but it won't be her last - she has won a pair of tickets to next year's festival.
