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.

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.
