Stallholders and other societies are confirming their attendance – see the current list.

Travel Information:

Parking will be available at the school. If practicable please car share to help avoid the car park becoming full. There is no on-street parking available. If the car park is full you will need to use the public car park in Summertown.  Charges can be found at Summertown car park – Car Parks in Oxford | Oxford City Council.

For travel by car, it is suggested that you use the Banbury or Woodstock Roads. If travelling across the City and propose to use Marston Ferry Road please check at Traffic filters | Oxfordshire County Council. The County Council are proposing to install traffic filters on Marston Ferry Road but, as yet, do not have a firm timetable for this. It is partially dependent on the opening of Botley Road, on completion of the works at the railway station.
