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.

Battle Proms Picnic Concert

22nd July

Every summer, thousands of concert-goers pack up a picnic, stock up on fizz and join the party for the Battle Proms Concert. This year it's the 20th anniversary of the celebration!

Expect an exceptional evening of classical music, carefully choreographed Spitfire, cavalry and aerial freefall displays, dramatic cannon fire and a stunning firework finale.

The concert will take place next to the spectacular Column of Victory, perfect for a triumphant Great British celebration.

The Battle Proms will once again be raising funds for their charity partner Combat Stress: the UK’s leading mental health charity for Veterans. Last summer our incredibly generous audience donated over £5,300 on the night and helped to raise more than £45,700 over the course of the summer. We hope to beat this number and continue to make a difference in the lives of brave veterans.

Doors open at 16.00, so choose your spot in the auditorium and settle in for a fabulous evening of spectacular entertainment!

Cert.12A / 108 mins

A United Kingdom tells the inspiring true story of Seretse Khama (David Oyelowo), the King of Bechuanaland (modern Botswana), and Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike), the London office worker whom he married in 1948 in the face of fierce opposition from their families and the British and South African governments. Seretse and Ruth defied family, apartheid and empire - their love triumphed over every obstacle flung in their path and in so doing they transformed their nation and inspired the world.

Witney Carnival

Witney Carnival

The Carnival has been a highlight of the year in Witney since 1928, when it was first started by the then British Legion (now Royal British Legion). It was originally held on King George’s Recreation Field at Newland, and most local firms such as Early’s Blanket Factory and schools would decorate a float for the procession – much the same as today.

Carnival came to a halt after the outbreak of the Second World War but in 1988 it was revived by Witney Lions, Witney Rotary Club, Witney Round Table and Witney Rugby Club. After restarting it was more a fete than a carnival and was held at Cogges. More recently it has been held on the Leys and continues to flourish as the town’s most popular family event and entry remains FREE.  

The Carnival is organised by four Witney Clubs - Lions, Rotary, Round Table and the Air Training Cadets. On this page you will find out more about each of these organisations. 

The Rotary Club of Witney. Our aim is to provide an annual event which is free and which can be enjoyed by the whole family. The Procession is always a colourful attraction and there is lots of entertainment, for all ages, on the Leys. All the profits made from the stalls and other attractions is used to support the local community. This year we hope to be running our ever popular Prosecco and Pimm's Bar and Burger stall. If you would like to know more about Rotary please visit our web site. www.witneyrotary.org

Witney Lions Club. The Carnival is now the largest community family event in the town. Preparations start well before the actual day. The day before the Carnival our members erect 6 x 12m marquees and two gazebos. Who would have thought that the Witney Lions Fun Run, with a few trade and charity stalls would grow into Witney Carnival? Our Club has now achieved 47 years of continuous service to the local community and as members of Lions International we are part of the largest organisation in the world. If you would like to join us please visit our web site: www.witneylions.org.uk

Witney Round Table. Last year’s Carnival was another great success not only giving thousands of people a wonderful day out but also raising money for local charities and good causes. The Round Table works closely with the Rotary Club, Lions Club and Air training Corps in the spirit of giving something back to the community. Being a member of Round Table is also about having fun, making new friends and trying something new and exciting. If you would like to get involved you can find us at the Donkey Derby or Beer tents or you can get in touch with us via Facebook or Twitter. Here’s hoping for good weather! Web site: witneyroundtable@gmail.com

No 2120 (Witney) Squadron are proud to be involved with the Witney Carnival. This year our cadets will help by acting as guides, picking up litter and, most importantly, as bodies to help whenever they are needed. We have been working with young people in the town for many years and today’s cadets continue to be an important part of the community. Our cadets are members of one of the biggest youth groups in the country and cadets are able to enjoy a wide range of activities including Flying Scholarships, public services, sports or adventure training.

The Merry Wives of Windsor

The Festival Players return to Ramsden for a fourth year with The Merry Wives of Windsor. A traditionally all-male troupe of players, they have entertained us in the past with A Comedy of Errors, As You Like It, and a suitably stormy Hamlet last year. Come and have a picnic beforehand and enjoy an evening of Shakespeare in a good cause.

Garden opens for picnics from 17:30 with the performance starting at 19:15. Parking available.

Tickets, which are available in advance, are £25.00 per person, including complimentary refreshments during the interval.

£15.00 of this £25.00 is gift-aidable. School age children are admitted free. ALL funds raised go to The Ashmolean.

The evening is in aid of the Ashmolean Museum.
