Ramsden Christmas Market

REDIRECTING YOU TO THE MAIN MARKET PAGE…

Ramsden Christmas Market – the largest seasonal market in West Oxfordshire

Ramsden extends a warm welcome to all visitors to the biggest covered Christmas Market in West Oxfordshire. Warm – because the entire Market will be held under canvas at the new location Shuckletts’ Paddock in the centre of Ramsden. 

Christmas 18.jpg

With over 50 stalls selling artisan food, hand-made clothing and gifts, bags and accessories, cushions, scarves, wreaths, Christmas decorations, original ceramics, stoneware, sculpture, stained glass and illustrations, soaps and candles, you won’t need to go anywhere else this year for your Christmas shopping. Ramsden has always sought out stallholders who sell unusual, unique, hand-made or Fair Trade goods and shoppers know they will always find something different and interesting at the Christmas Market. 

As well as buying your gifts, you can enjoy lunch or afternoon tea right in the middle of the Market to the accompaniment of local musicians. A variety of street-food artisans will be offering hot food and parents can grab a glass of Santa Strangler mulled wine (or beer, or gin) from the bar to sustain them in the queue for Father Christmas.

The 2018 Market will be held on Saturday, 1st December, from 1pm to 4pm at Shuckletts’ Paddock, Ramsden, OX 7 3AU. Ramsden is 4 miles north of Witney just off the B4022 road to Charlbury and Chipping Norton. Parking is in dedicated car parks at either end of the village. Entry is £2 for adults, children (and dogs) free. 

Stallholders please contact the Stalls Manager via: christmasmarket@ramsdenvillage.co.uk for further information.

Bampton Classical Opera - Amahl and the Night Visitors

Bampton Classical Opera - Amahl and the Night Visitors

sound-67413_1280.jpg


Gian Carlo Menotti's much-loved Christmas opera Amahl and the Night Visitors was commissioned in America by the National Broadcasting Company and was broadcast in 1951 - the first-ever opera composed specifically for television. Menotti said that it "is an opera for children because it tries to recapture my own childhood".

Amahl, a poor widow's son, who can only walk with the help of a crutch, is amazed one evening to see a huge star hovering over their house. Three regally dressed strangers arrive and seek shelter for the night. For Amahl, these wondrous events lead to a miraculous healing and his own long journey to follow the star.

Bampton Classical Opera, well known for their performances of rare eighteenth-century opera, presents this magical twentieth-century classic in a new semi-staged production in costume especially aimed at families and children.  

The Mother is played by Emma Stannard, winner of the Bampton Classical Opera Young Singers' Competition 2017, and the role of the boy Amahl is taken by 11-year-old Felix Gillingwater, chorister at Southwark Cathedral. The conductor is Anthony Kraus, formerly with Opera North, who is also one of the pianists in Menotti's own exciting arrangement for two pianos. The second pianist is Keval Shah, who won the Accompanists' Prize in the Bampton Classical Opera Young Singers' Competition 2017, when he accompanied Emma Stannard.
