About this Event

Oxfordshire’s Best Family weekend music event is held in Watlington in June. Friday June 15th and Saturday June 16th


A non-for profit event that provides the best location to watch live music not just in Oxfordshire but probably in the UK. It is not just about the music at our event, the whole family is catered for with a dedicated kids Zone, a variety of workshops and skills demonstrations. Supported by various food outlets, a well-stocked real ale bar, cider bar and guest bars offering options to make the night extra special.

Whether you want to spend the whole weekend with us camping on site, or just to visit us on either the Friday evening or the Saturday once you have been, you will keep coming back.

If you have never been to a festival then this is the one to try, easy access to everything, no queues for anything and you will never feel crowded. We cater for many tastes in music with a complete array on offer all day and night.
If you are a regular Festival goer then we are probably already on your radar and if not, then where have you been?
To be honest when the sun starts setting over Oxfordshire late in the evening it is the most magical place to be, with a drink in one hand some food in the other, friends and family laughing around you and a wonderful mix of music filling the night sky. Oh and when the night does come we light the Beacon on top of hill which can be seen for miles.

Join us for a wonderful weekend.

If you fancy doing something to contribute to the event, then hit our volunteers page or contact us page and we would be glad to hear from you. Give us a few hours before, on the weekend or share a skill you have we are open to ideas to continue to make Beacon the Best Social weekend of the year.
