What's On

After the success of our amazing online 2020 festival we continued our online events online through May to this autumn.  However, their success meant that a new organisation needed to be created!  Regular events have now moved to https://livetoyourlivingroom.com/.  Check out there for some amazing gigs coming up.  We are now concentrating on planning for Folk Weekend Oxford 2021, but there will still be some events here.  Most excitingly you can watch our wonderful local folk musicians perform live on our Folk Weekend Oxford Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/folkweekendoxford) every Sunday at 4pm.  See below for the information and head to the Facebook page to access them.  There will also be some ticketted Zoom concerts here between now and our Festival in April 2021.  See below for details  and ticket information
