Activities & Events In Oxfordshire 19th-20th May 2018

I have to be honest, I’m a little surprised at the lack of Royal wedding activities & events in Oxfordshire this weekend.  I thought there might be some fetes or something going on but I can’t seem to find any!  Never mind.  We’re planning on watching it round at Mother-In-Laws while enjoying beef rolls, scones and sangria in the garden.  I’m happy to settle for that!  After our crazy busy weekend for Cody’s 5th birthday last week it will be nice to relax.  Have a lovely weekend everyone!
