Headington Festival 2011

Headington Festival 2011

The Festival has been running for several years now and is gaining its place as a fixture on the Headington calendar – right up there with the open gardens (this week and next). All credit to Headington Action for being the driving force behind this.

A children’s brass ensemble performed today, to general admiration all round. They were great little performers ably lead by their conductor who wore a general, restrained air of anxiety right up to the final, warbling note. A tremendous achievement …

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, whatever form you’d like to take the greetings in …

It’s a cold and snowy Oxford this year, and the first I can remember with such an extensive fall of snow lying on the day itself.
