Hosenbury started in the early 2000s as an add on to the local village fete. A band was booked to perform on the playing field and people turned up with a picnic.

Since then, Hosenbury has grown and been able to develop its charitable initiatives. Over the last several years, Hosenbury has been able to split its profits between the village school, the Church and the local youth fund.

Hosenbury is organised by a committee made up of villagers, who volunteer their time and expertise to put on a great event to be enjoyed by everyone.

Usually the event runs across the weekend however in 2021, due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the decision has been made to keep the festival to one day
