The biennial Dorchester-on-Thames Festival is one of Oxfordshire’s leading Festivals based in the stunning location of Dorchester Abbey.

Since 2005 the Festival has regularly attracted over 3,000 people each year, from serious followers of the arts to schools, families and children of all ages and has raised significant profile and over £110,000 for Dorchester Abbey and local charities.  For 2015 we were proud to give £27,000 to PACT (Parents and Children Together) who are raising money for their post adoption support work.
