The biennial Dorchester-on-Thames Festival is one of Oxfordshire’s leading Festivals based in and around 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 £200,000 for Dorchester Abbey and local charities. In 2022 we will be partnering with Daybreak, a local charity that supports people with dementia.
