Lots of stuff happening this weekend in the #GetThereFromBanbury area, no matter what your area of interest happens to be – music, food, collectibles, or motoring history.
Saturday, July 8 is BodFest. This is one of the most anticipated events of the year around here – especially by music lovers as BodFest features not one but two stages of live music throughout the day and into evening. One day filled with everything you could want for a family day out. The festival is filled to the brim with music, food, drinks, crafts, rides, and games. All a terrific value at £3 for adults and free admission for accompanied under 16s. This year, BodFest is being held at Bodicote Park, home of Banbury RUFC which can be found on the Oxford Road between Banbury and Adderbury.
Sunday, a bit further out but bound to be a draw for foodies, chilli and cheese lovers in the area – the Warwick Chilli and Cheese Festival. Located, as so many of the Wariwck events are, in the market square, the festival runs from 10am – 4pm and admission is free. There will be competitions (eating and cooking), market stalls with chillies (picked and still on plants), cheeses, spiced up brownies, burgers, sausages, etc. And for those needing a bit of a cool down, ice creams, milkshakes and smoothies.
If music and/or chilli and cheese don’t float your boat – maybe a bit of vintage and a chance of TV exposure is more your thing. Head over to the British Motor Museum for their next Antique and Collectors Fair (July 8-9 and organised Field Dog Fairs) and in addition to the collectibles and antiques, you will find the BBC filming ‘Bargain Hunt’. Yup – presenter Anita Manning and two experts, Philip Serrell and Richard Madley will be filming the programme on the premises on Sunday 9 July. It’s just their kinda thing too –all sorts of goods on offer and on display – glassware, period furniture, vintage clothing, kitchenalia and at all sorts of price points.
Entry to the Antiques Fair is £4 per person, with concession £3 and under 16s free. There is ample free parking and there are card payment facilities in place at the Fair for items purchased from the Antiques Fair. Ticket prices are for entry to the Antiques Fair only and separate tickets will need to be purchased for entry to the British Motor Museum, these are available on the day at the discounted rate of £9 per person.
