Wantage Summer Festival
Wantage Summer Festival is a regular fixture in the cultural calendar in the Wantage, Grove and the surrounding villages. It runs for one month, starting from the first Saturday in June. 5,000 to 7,000 people join our Festival events each year to celebrate their summer with us!
The aim of Wantage Summer Festival is to raise awareness of the a wealth of enthusiastic organisations, groups and individuals in the area, to celebrate their talents and to provide opportunities for the community to enjoy a varied programme of events, ranging from music and drama, to crafts, photography, historical talks, heritage walk plus much more. As well as the core participants who provide the backbone of the programme, the Festival is keen to showcase the not so well-known smaller specialist groups, often combining workshops which give the opportunity to learn a new skill.
