Charlbury Farmers Market

tomato-2776735_1920.jpg

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
Aug

7:00 PM19:00

The Winter's Tale

Written by Shakespeare in his later years, The Winter's Tale is an intriguing mix of drama and comedy.

Sparked by an obsessive envy of a perceived relationship between his Queen and his oldest friend, Leontes, the King of Sicilia, sets in motion a chain of events which affect two kingdoms and two generations; there is jealousy and joy, revenge and romance, loss and discovery, remorse and revelry, and an amazing revelation.

Tremendous entertainment for a Summer evening!

Notes on Performance:

Doors open at 6pm, so why not bring a picnic and come and enjoy the beautiful surroundings before the show?
Chairs, picnics, blankets and any other low level accessories are welcome.
In case of rain, please don't bring umbrellas as they block sight-lines for other audience members. Ponchos and raincoats are just as fetching anyway, so please wear these instead! In very bad weather, the performance will be in the barns.
Refreshments will be available.

Tickets are just £14 per adult, £9.50 children (under 16).

Available online, via the Cogges website, or at the Cogges welcome desk. 10% discount on tickets available for Cogges Season Ticket holders.

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.
