About HanFEST 2022
A fun day out for the whole family in the historic Oxfordshire village of Hanwell, near Banbury.
HanFEST is a not-for-profit community event held in Hanwell village near Banbury, Oxfordshire. The event takes place in summer and is organised by residents living in Hanwell.
HanFEST pops a big smile on everyone’s face. If you love locally produced food & drink, artisan goods, with live folk music & dancing all with a feeling of a rural village fayre, then you’ll be smiling too.
The Farmer’s Market is the place to pick up truly fresh local produce. Expect to find some of Oxfordshire’s and the surrounding area’s finest quality food and drink to eat there or to take home with you later.

See artists and craftspeople at work and have a go yourself in the HanFEST Arts & Crafts Village.

HanFEST 2022 main act at 8.00pm – Red Box
Red Box first hit the headlines in the 1980s with a world-flecked sound that brought Tribal Pop to the airwaves well before the term ‘World Music’ was coined.
Their ambitious and eclectic debut album ‘The Circle and the Square’ (1986) put them firmly on the musical map, delivering two global hits in ‘Lean on Me (ah-li-ayo)’ and ‘For America’. In the intervening years, ‘The Circle and the Square’ and the second album ‘Motive’ attained cult status.
In 2011 Red Box returned with their third and critically acclaimed album ‘Plenty’, which provided a string of chart hits in Europe and established a solid touring base. The band released their fourth and most recent studio album, ‘Chase The Setting Sun’, in 2020.
