Foxton Locks Festival
it’s bigger and better than ever…

This year we are pleased to announce that, thanks to the generous support of Lottery Funding, the festival will include even more events than ever before.


This summer sees the festival open on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 June at 10am.


Set against the historic backdrop of Foxton Locks, organisers anticipate a record-breaking attendance. Trading Boats on the canal and locks will be dressed for the occasion, creating a scenic display for passers-by and festival goers alike.


There will be two sound stages for a diverse range of entertainment and the Arena events are bigger and better than ever. The festival also offers traditional Ferret Racing, historical enactments and the opportunity to get up close and personal with exotic alpacas and a host of cute pets. There will also be daily Fun Dog Shows.


The Craft Marquee will feature over 100 of the region’s finest artisans. Visitors have the choice to either settle into the large marquee bar or visit the Prosecco & Cocktail bar. The expansive Food Village, offers a wide range of delicious meals and snacks.


Tickets are £8 per day, including parking, free for children under 16 and accompanied by an adult. To find out more go to
