*** Please Note ***

Ampthill Festival starts on Friday 29th June and runs across the weekend. Starting with AmpRocks on Friday, Proms in the Park on Saturday and culminating with Gala Day on Sunday, it is truly set to be an out of this world weekend.

The preparation within the Park will start on Monday 25th June at 08:00. We have many scheduled deliveries arriving on site from this time onwards, mostly on large articulated vehicles. All deliveries will arrive on site via the West car park and then along the road adjacent to the cricket pitch.

To maximise safety for our volunteers, contractors and Park patrons we will be closing off the Arena area from 08:00 on Monday 25th June. There will be no access into this area from this time until 18:00 on Monday 2nd July.

Ampthill Festival apologises for any inconvenience caused, but assures you that everyone’s safety is paramount during the Festival period.

Huge thank you to Ampthill Town Cricket Club for hosting the Festival Committee and families this evening playing a social game for the Brian Young Trophy. The Festival cannot happen without the support of local club and societies and evenings like tonight demonstrate the community spirit we have in Ampthill. Congratulations to Ampthill Town CC who won by 19 runs and we look forward to returning next year to try and wrestle the Trophy away. Massive shout out to Robert, Ben and Luke, sons of festival members, batting well against the adults and Luke took 3 wickets. 🏏

We will be back soon after the summer with updates on 2019.

Found it very dissatisfying this year, the fenced off area have just made it so disjointed, that’s my opinion anyway

We’re raising a glass (or two) to Ian & all the crew + all the volunteers - a magnificent weekend. x

Thanks for having us! What an absolutely fantastic weekend. Amazing support from all the VOLUNTEERS! Take a bow (& a sip!) all of you and we'll see you next year! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👌🏼👍🏼

We’ve had such a fab weekend - how lucky are we to have such a lovely festival on our doorstep? HUGE thanks to the small army of volunteers whose hard work makes it all possible 😊

Excellent weekend. Thanks to all the volunteers!! See you next year !

Thank you all you are doing amazing yet another great weekend .x It was a blast !
