WOLVERCOTE

MIDSUMMER  FESTIVAL

2008

 

12th – 15TH June

Programme

____________________________

 

 

 

 

Our  sixth Festival has a woodland theme which will be reflected in  the children’s workshop and procession, Fun on the Green and the Festival Service.  

 

We are proud to include our first Wolvercote Literary Festival in this year’s programme which includes talks by local authors, a creative writing workshop and a literary trail around Wolvercote for which maps will be available.

 

We are also delighted to include an exhibition by OXPOTS, who are a group of potters who are blind or  visually impaired

 

It is a fun weekend for all ages. The events are free unless stated. It is not a fundraising event in itself, aiming only to cover costs, but if money is raised beyond what is needed to stage the events, then donations are made to local organisations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We hope you enjoy the festival programme.
