Entry – Adults £3, Unwaged £2 and under 12’s free.

Parking: This will be challenging near the site late morning onwards.

Elder Stubbs Charity Allotments: The allotments are located opposite Florence Park on Rymers Lane. It is a community site providing approximately 100 plots of variable sizes to local people. 2 local charities are also supported – Restore and The Porch who work with and support some of the more vulnerable members of our community.

Vegetable Show: This will be open to include growers with allotment plots in the Oxford area. It will be great to share our growing passion with fellow allotment enthusiasts. The Festival usually attracts around 3000 people from our local community and our display helps to showcase positive aspects of what can be produced on allotments. Details about entries are in the attached category list below.

The Vegetable Show will be in our event marquee which can be found on the lawn area in front of the Restore buildings.

Elder Stubbs Festival: An excellent family friendly occasion with many local people attending and in the past there have been lots of stalls selling interesting items, community groups advocating for causes which they enthusiastically support, a number of groups and musicians performing on 2 stages, face painting, raptor displays, multicultural food, circus acts, face painting, swing boats etc. What is described does vary from year to year depending on the availability of stall holders and artists wanting to take part.

This Festival is organised by Restore and they work hard to convey what their charitable work promotes in supporting members of our community who are recovering from mental illness and to reduce the associated stigma.
