In the last of our Cornbury interviews, we bring you our chat with Eddy Smith and the 507, who are not, despite their name, made up of 508 members, but one of them is actually named Eddy. Now based in London, they come from as far as Kent, the US, Ireland, and Surrey (or is it Sussex?). Lisa sat down and had a chat with the band.
Six years after their sensational performance at Cornbury, award-winning pop rockers Keane return to headline Cornbury’s 16th Festival on Saturday 6 July. Cornbury will be one of Keane’s first appearances since band members took a break at the end of 2013 to work on other projects, so their appearance will be a huge crowd-puller.
