We've produced a mini-documentary about Fairport's Cropredy Convention with help from TV director Mike Rowbottom.

It captures the unique atmosphere of our festival through interviews and music clips. The footage was shot on the campsites, concert field and backstage.

If you haven't been to Cropredy before, you can see what it's like by watching the nine-minute video on the Cropredy section of our website here.
