What’s on in Oxfordshire this August

It’s the last month of Summer, but there’s no need to despair! There’s still so much to do around Oxfordshire, meaning you can take advantage of the last of the Summer sun. Here are some of our favourites.

Blenheim Palace Summer Foraging Event

Run by Wild Food UK, this specialist event will see you exploring the woods surrounding Blenheim Palace for a range of tasty organic goodies – including edible flowers, plants, fruits and maybe even some mushrooms. You’ll be given a quick 20-minute introduction to foraging including a rundown on countryside regulations and how they relate to foraging. After 2 to 3 hours of exploring and searching the group will settle down to look over everyone’s findings and to indulge in an outdoor wild food lunch. Spaces are limited with the next event taking place on August 12th, so book today to avoid disappointment!

Minster Lovell Beer Festival & Fun Day

Head down to Minster Lovell this August 26th and enjoy a traditional British village beer festival and fun day. Set against the beautiful banks of the River Windrush, there’ll be casks of locally produced ales and ciders and other refreshments to dig into, alongside live music, children’s rides, entertainment and even a duck race! Located a short drive (or taxi ride) away from Witney, there are far worse ways to spend a sunny August Bank Holiday than sitting by a beautiful river with a pint of local ale in your hand!

Blenheim Palace Festival of Transport

August 26th and 27th sees the return of Britain’s premier August motor show, the Blenheim Palace Festival of Transport. A must visit for petrol heads, the Blenheim Palace Festival of Transport features over 500 vintage, classic and modern classic vehicles from across motoring history. New to the festival since 2017 is the Electric Vehicle Zone. This modern exhibit showcases the best in alternative power vehicles courtesy of the Electric Automobile Association, with stands from Tesla, BMW, Nissan, Porsche and many others.

With all this, as well as car judging, refreshments and trade and retail stalls set against the historical backdrop of Blenheim Palace, there’s no excuse for any motor fan to miss the 2018 Blenheim Palace Festival of Transport.

Tuckers’ Fest Family Food Festival

Round off a jam-packed August Bank Holiday weekend with a visit to Cogges Manor Farm and their Tucker’s Feast Family Food Festival on Monday 27th August. This traditional Witney feast was once held for the master weavers of local blanket factories but has been resurrected by Cogges Manor Farm as an annual family feast day.

With stalls, demonstrations, live music and try-it-yourself sessions in the manor house kitchen with local foodie legends as well as kids activities – including storytelling and a bouncy castle – there’s plenty to sample if you can tear yourself away from the spectacular food and drink on offer!

Any of these catch your fancy? If so, there’s no better spot to stay while exploring Oxfordshire than Hardwick Parks in Witney. All of these events are just a short drive away from our doorstep, so what are you waiting for? Book your next Oxfordshire touring break today!
