Harrow Fest 21
A Family Friendly Music Festival
Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th August 2021 midday until late each day
In February 2020, a new team started serving drinks out of the front bar of The Harrow Inn, in the village of Wanborough, near Swindon.
In March 2020, Covid 19 hit the U.K and the first of many lockdowns started.
Making the most of the situation, the paddock at the end of the pub carpark was transformed from an overgrown mess to an amazing outside event space.
The ‘Secret Garden’ now boasts power, festoon lighting, a marquee, loads of seating, a children’s play area and an Aunt Sally Alley (Google it!!!)
Starting a year later then planned, Harrow Fest 2021 will see the closure of the carpark for street food vans and entertainment, specialist bars and two afternoons of music, stretching into each evening.
