NozStock 2019

We’re off to see the Wizard, the wonderful wizard of Noz!!

While the youngsters of Rowden House School had enjoyed a very successful Prom evening, the residents of Winslow Court & Cedar Lodge were eagerly anticipating the weekend’s festival.

Now in its 21st year, Nozstock is one of the UK’s longest running festivals. Family-run, very much home-made and proudly independent on a beautiful working farm set upon rolling hills, the Nosworthy family continue to curate one of the UK’s finest emporiums of music, arts, food and drink, with a huge focus on keeping all kids and families entertained in the Little Wonderland Kids Area.

Highlights for many included a DJ set from Rudimental, Soul II Soul and The Sleaford Mods, while the energetic and uplifting Oh My God! It’s The Church returned to the main Orchard stage for their Sunday service !!

Residents & staff collected their festival bands from the entry tent and followed the yellow brick road to the wonderful Rainbow, which then took us all in to the enchanted world of OZ (This year’s festival had a Wizard of Oz theme, complete with tin men, cowardly lions, witches, munchkin men & and an emerald city.

The Orchard (main) stage was the main focal point, where they enjoyed listening to the bands play Sunday morning and watching the performers weave & dance their way through the morning crowds.

Everyone had a really good time and we would like to thank the Nozstock team, especially Cara, who made this visit possible.
