THE FESTIVAL (With apologies to Rupert Brooke)

Thanks very much to Steve Phillips for sending in this poem.

There is a corner of an English field
That is for ever ‘Fairport’.
A ledge, where every August,
We convene
And join our friends,
To walk awhile with them
To Jonah’s Oak,
And listen for the Fairport Bell;
Foretelling music
Sweet and clear,
Which drifts across the countryside
And pleases many an ear.

Two hundred years from now,
When time has flown
(Though who knows where?)
Will they still talk of days
When we all gathered
On this ledge,
Awaiting Fairport?
Simon, Peggy,
Jerry, Ric and Chris -
England’s finest every one;
Reply with a resounding ‘Yes!’
No, Cropredy will not forget,
For Simon’s spirit will whisper still -
‘Same time next year.....’

- Steve Phillips 11/8/2019

Cruise the stunning River Danube with Fairport Convention 18th - 25th June 2021

Fairport Rhine montage

Following the rapid sell-out of their 2020 Rhine cruise, Fairport Convention are delighted to invite you to join them in June 2021 on the trip of a lifetime along the beautiful River Danube.

Casting off in the wonderful UNESCO World Heritage city of Budapest and then taking in Bratislava, Vienna, Wachau, Salzburg, Linz and Regensburg, this is a unique opportunity to combine fabulous scenery, fascinating city sights and cultural experiences with luxurious accommodation, gourmet food, free-flowing quality wines and 5 nights brilliant entertainment from Fairport and Friends.

In this intimate setting you will have the opportunity to meet, chat and socialise with Simon, Peggy, Chris, Ric and Gerry who have promised to reveal some hidden talents - we will let you guess which band member is a keen magician, and which of them has ambitions to be a stand up comedian!
