Oxfordshire Past Past

We added a list of past meetings and as many programmes as we could track down.

Oxfordshire Past 2017 will be held on Saturday 17th June at the Barns Centre, Church Road, Thame, from 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. This enjoyable annual event in the Oxfordshire calendar is for all those interested in history, buildings and archaeology. Stalls and exhibits will be open throughout the day. The programme appears below.

There is some parking at the Centre, and a public car park at Cattlemarket, North Street, 9 minutes' walk from the Centre. The Arriva 280 Bus from Oxford to Aylesbury runs every 20 minutes, and the Thame Museum stop is close to Church Road.

Attendance at Oxfordshire Past costs £7 and must be paid in advance. This includes tea/coffee but not lunch. The town centre is 5 minutes walk away.
