Puppy Class

All information about us and our classes can also
be found on our website www.oabt.co.uk and on our Facebook page Oxfordshire
Animal Behaviour and Training.

Come and socialise your puppy safely in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.
Introduce your puppy to some essential skills via some simple training
exercises. We take a life skills approach, so as well as teaching your dog
to do what you ask (being obedient), we also look to support them in
learning to make the right choices themselves (being well behaved). We help
you to troubleshoot any problems, and answer common questions. We will also
give preventative advice to avoid common behaviour problems later in life. 

Topics include recall, lead walking, settling, jumping up, handling, body
language, play, marker training, and more. We tailor our sessions to you, so
can add or remove topics to best suit our puppy group.

Small groups (max 6) with tailored, individual attention. Taught by our
qualified and experienced behaviourist and trainer Sarah Tapsell and our
trainer Ryan Dillon

Our next Class commences on 31st of July and runs for 6 weeks, this is
excluding the bank holiday and so the course finishes on 11th September.

Brief Encounter - Charlbury Film Club Film of the month.
Feb

7:00 PM19:00

Brief Encounter - Charlbury Film Club Film of the month.

Cert PG / 86mins

The opening entry in ChOC's new 'Classic Cinema'strand is the black-and-white masterpiece Brief Encounter (1945).

Celia Johnson is middle-class suburban housewife Laura Jesson. Returning from her weekly shopping trip one afternoon, a chance meeting in a railway station buffet with Dr Alec Harvey (Trevor Howard) is the spark for a casual friendship that soon combusts into something more passionate. But as Laura and Alec are both happily married with children, and this is pre-war England, how can their relationship develop without ending in disaster?

Featuring an Oscar-nominated performance from Celia Johnson, the film is also notable for the comic relief provided by Stanley Holloway, Joyce Carey and Irene Handl, among others. With its superlative photography, atmospheric location sequences filmed at Carnforth railway station, assured direction from David Lean and the haunting music of Rachmaninov, Brief Encounter is a nostalgic and poignant treat for the senses.

Voted the second greatest British movie of all time by the British Film Institute, Brief Encounter has long been enshrined in cinema history as one of the finest 'weepies' ever made.

War Memorial Hall, Charlbury at 7pm
Doors & licensed bar from 6.15pm

Admission: £5 / U15s £3

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.

Rare Plant Fair

Rare Plant Fair

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.

There will be 15 minutes set aside for public participation.
There is a limit of 5 minutes per speaker, followed by questions from Councillors as appropriate.
Councillors will listen to your point of view and will do their best to respond.
Members of the public are welcome to stay and listen, but are not able to take part in the subsequent discussions.
Minutes taken of the proceedings will identify the member of the public.
If members of the public do not wish their identity to form part of the minutes, which are a public record, they can express their views on any business to the Council in writing, and if necessary in confidence.

The Great Brook Run

The Great Brook Run is an annual charity cross-country race held at the end of December which takes place half on land, half in water from the picturesque Cotswold village of Chadlington.

The course wends it way through muddy fields and then back to Chadlington through the icy waters of The Great Brook.

Survivors, for there are some, get to retire to The Tite Inn to warm their frozen toes by the fire, quaff an ale or two and regale passers by with stories of derring do and dunkings, all the while admiring their medal dangling gamely in somebody elses beer.

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.

Ramsden's Famous Christmas Market

Ramsden's Famous Christmas Market

Ram Christmas  17.jpg

West Oxfordshire’s largest covered Christmas Market!

The tiny village of Ramsden is the surprising venue for what must now be the biggest covered Christmas Market in West Oxfordshire. No need to shiver in the wind and rain, as the entire Market is held under cover in the beautifully decorated big barn at Lower Farm.

Since the Market moved to Lower Farm, it has grown beyond all expectations. Seven years ago there were 12 stalls. This year, with the addition of extra space, the organisers plan to have at least 50 selling crafts, artisan food, hand-made clothing and gifts, books, wreaths, Christmas decorations and a host of other goodies. 

Xmas market 16.jpg

One of the organisers, Jude Douglass, said: “we have always had a policy of seeking out stallholders who sell unusual, unique, hand-made or Fair Trade goods. Shoppers always know they will find something different at Ramsden.”

Shoppers also love the atmosphere at Ramsden. After buying their gifts, they can enjoy lunch or afternoon tea right in the middle of the Market to the accompaniment of handbell-ringing, carol-singing or a jazz band. This year there will be more food than ever and parents can grab a glass of mulled wine to sustain them in the queue for Father Christmas.

Stallholders say (and they should know!) that it is the friendliest Market around and that there is always a great buzz of chatter and laughter. Bill Miller, who masterminds the set-up of the Market said: “the social aspect is very important. The Market is a vital fund-raiser for the village but it has also got to be fun – for us as well as the shoppers”.

The 2017 Market is on Saturday, 2nd December, from 1pm to 4pm at Lower Farm, Ramsden, OX7 3AZ. Ramsden is 4 miles north of Witney just off the B4022 road to Charlbury and Chipping Norton .

Evenlode & Pop up Folk present Nick Hooper & Gordon Giltrap

Evenlode & Pop up Folk present Nick Hooper & Gordon Giltrap

"TWO FRIENDS SHARING MUSIC"

 

Don't miss this extraordinary evening of solos and duos from guitar legends near and far

As one of the UK's most respected guitarists, the legendary Gordon Giltrap has graced the music business with his dedication to his craft and affection for his audience for over 40 years. Playing the guitar from the age of 12, he never received formal tuition, gradually developing his own style and technique. His musical styles cross several genres, including folk, blues, folk-rock, pop, classical and rock. He was signed to Transatlantic Records at the age of 18 and has released numerous acclaimed albums, including the 1976 album Visionary, based on the art and poetry of William Blake. His follow-up album Perilous Journey was named by the Sunday Times as one of the best albums of 1977.  Gordon enjoyed a brief spell in the 70s as a pop star, with a trio of now classic albums and hit singles: 'Heartsong' (nominated for an Ivor Novello award and fondly remembered as the theme tune to the BBC's Holiday programme) and 'Fear of the Dark', while Gordon himself rates the bestselling 2007 album Troubadour as his finest work.

Gordon has performed alongside Bert Jansch (one of his major influences), John Renbourn, Brian May, Rick Wakeman and Mike Oldfield, amongst many others.

‘Gordon Giltrap is one of the best acoustic guitar players in the world. His concerts and playing are breathtaking. He’s also very witty, and I love the fact that he has not cut his hair!’ - Ritchie Blackmore (Deep Purple and Blackmore's Night)

'Gordon Giltrap is one of an elite few who truly have become legendary in their field in their own lifetime' - Brian May

Although Nick Hooper is better known as a film-music composer, he started his musical career as a guitarist, studying at The Royal College of Music and receiving tuition from John Williams and others. In the late 70s he toured widely under the auspices of Yehudi Menuhin’s Live Music Now and also The British Council. In the 1980s Nick released folk album Turning Tables with Chris Leslie and a solo album of music by J S Bach which was critically acclaimed, comparing his playing to that of John Williams and Andres Segovia.

Decades later, after a successful film music career, scoring two Harry potter films and winning many awards, Nick has returned to his first love – the guitar. He joined forces with his wife Judith to form the duo Henderson:Hooper, started a folk series which has now become ‘Pop-up Folk’ and helped form The DellyWellyBoot Band. A couple of years ago Nick recorded an album of mainly Irish music entitled Six Strings - and it was this that caused him to meet Gordon Giltrap, who generously helped him to get his new Fylde guitar – a copy of Gordon’s.

Of Six Strings: ‘It’s a complete joy. It’s going to be one of those albums that I play a lot, because it’s got that kind of calm spaciousness about it too, which is absolutely brilliant. Love it!’ - Chris Leslie
