Bampton Day of Dance
May
21
8:30 AM08:30

Bampton Day of Dance

A day of dancing through the village - an annual celebration of Morris Dancing in a tradition dating back 500 years.

Bampton has three world-renowned Morris Dance teams. On the Monday of the Spring Bank Holiday, the teams start the dancing at around 08.30, and continue through the day at various locations in the village – including outside the pubs. The programme for the day’s events can be obtained in or around The Market Square. In the evening, visiting teams join in the dancing, and ‘make merry’. And do try the ‘fertility cake’, which is carried around the streets with the dancers.

Morris dancing typically involves six dancers, in a performance formation of two lines of three, plus various ancillary characters such as fool and cake/sword bearer.

The pubs are open all day and there are usually great music sessions in the evening.

Charlbury Farmers Market

Charlbury Farmers Market

Charlbury is a Cotswold Market Town with a Charter granted by King Henry III in 1256. The original market place was in Church Street but nowadays there is too much traffic and street closure is not an option. The Playing Close is a superb location and the Trustees of Thomas Gifford's Charity (the landowner) has agreed that Charlbury farmers' markets can take place there. Charlbury has a long history, which can be viewed in the Museum and its five Churches, it also has a hotel, a variety of pubs, delicatessen, book shop, newsagents, chemists, estate agents, general stores and a library. 

To this was added our first Farmers' Market in July 2001 of 8 stalls. We now attract about 30 stalls quarterly with a range of products from plants to willow baskets, chillies to sheepskins. All the produce comes from within a 50 mile radius of Charlbury and complies with TVFMC rules. 

We also allow stalls that promote Charlbury's many activities such as the annual Street Fair, Beer Festival and Children's Playgroup.

The Winter's Tale

Save the date!

On the 7th July 2018, the festival Players are bringing to Ramsden The Winter’s Tale: a story of right royal suspicion, a wronged queen, a lost child, true love and a murderous bear.  Written in two parts, Shakespeare brilliantly takes us from despair, loss and tragedy in the court of Leontes to the bucolic charm of summery Bohemia in this play about loss and redemption.

The play will start at 7.30pm with a 20 minute interval where free refreshments will be served.  Please come and have a picnic in the garden beforehand; the gate will be open from 5.30pm.

Tickets cost £25 each and school age children can come for free.  The play is fully sponsored so ALL ticket proceeds go to the Ashmolean.

Price for the talk and a glass of wine will be £6.

The Old Rectory, Quenington, Nr Cirencester

 

This Grade II listed Old Rectory with its organic garden has been developed over the past 40 years and is in a very tranquil setting on the banks of a mill race, with the River Coln running through the gardens. The wooden bridge that spans the river encapsulates the quirky spirit of fun, creativity and history that comes together at Quenington. The history of the site probably stretches back to the 12th century, when the Knights Hospitaller had a preceptory in the village.

Esme Bradburne, a former head gardener, who read Agriculture at Oxford, was one of the original founder members of the Soil Association.  The garden is still run completely on organic lines and Esme’s work was seminal in creating much of the planting that we see today.  Although the present layout goes back to 1928 when the Old Rectory was bought from the church.

There are herbaceous borders, mature trees, pool and bog gardens, as well as the large vegetable garden. The garden contains a permanent sculpture display.
