Festival 2016

The 24th Annual Mangotsfield Village Festival – Sat 11th June 2016

A very BIG Thank you

Massive thanks for supporting the Mangotsfield Village Festival 2016.  We are very sorry we had to close the show earlier than normal this year but the continual heavy rain was making it potentially dangerous for musicians to perform on the stage.

We would like to thank all the organisations and schools who either took part or helped.

If you have any suggestions or queries about the festival please contact chair@mangotsfieldfestival.co.uk or mobile 07765 201435.
