These are a few ofour favourite May things

The nights are definitely lighter, the promise of summer is round the corner and the children are learning ancient dances round the maypole! There’s festivals, open days and the first ripe strawberries to look forward to! 




Open Farm Sunday

Farming’s open day is back on the 9th of June and the Oxfordshire offering is strong! Book ahead as lots of the open day events sell out very quickly. 

Oxford Maths Festival

An extravaganza of all the wonderful curiosities mathematics holds. Over two days you can immerse yourself in a wide range of events, with something for everyone, no matter your age or prior mathematical experience.

Canoeing on the Oxford Canal

What a way to spend a day! A lovely sunny day canoeing adventure along the Oxford Canal and River Cherwell. Is there anything better than a meander on the water?

Big Bale Play at High Lodge Farm

Woweeeee! 200 large straw bales for running, jumping and climbing over. There’s also a fenced-off Mini Bale Play for under 5s with little bales and a sandpit. Absolute play heaven!
