Cropredy Capers


An oral history of Fairport Convention in the words of fans

Available on backorder


320 pages (hardback) (illustrated)

The Fairport Convention story stretches back more than 55 years, and their annual festival, Fairport’s Cropredy Convention, has been going for over 45. Cropredy Capers follows on from 2022’s highly regarded Gonna See All My Friends and s another slice of Fairport history in the words of fans, with stories of seeing and meeting the band in its many guises over the years. Over 200 memories of Fairport’s concert career, from 1967 to 2024, including hundreds of fan images, are included in this large format book printed on high quality paper and fully authorised by the band.

Packed with hundreds of items of memorabilia from the collection of Fairport archivist Ian Burgess and compiled by Richard Houghton, this really is a treasure trove of memories for any Fairport fan to savour.

Cropredy Capers will be published on 27 September 2024. Pre-publication orders will ship w/c 2 September 2024.
