Sept 11th – 26th

The Bicester Festival is an annual celebration of the arts, taking place at venues throughout the town during two weeks in September. The festive fortnight (11 to 26 September) offers experiences for all ages and will include pop-up art events, street performances and a spectacular parade. It’s all set in the historic and vibrant town of Bicester, famed for its shopping, hospitality and strong connections with the motor industry.

Visitors are warmly invited to come into the town centre to join the excitement and log onto www.BicesterFestival.org for all the latest timings and attractions.

Why not come to Bicester on Sunday 12 September for Charmaine Child’s Stronglady performances? The show is a celebration of the strength we find in unexpected places and the strength we build when we are wobbling at our edge. It’s funny, physical and full of hope and is an optimistic declaration that we are STRONG ENOUGH. A circus strong lady, telling stories of strength
that are far more exciting than just lifting heavy things! Exact timings and location tbc – check out @BicesterFestival on Facebook and find www.BicesterFestival.org for all the latest details.

Perhaps Old Time Sailors all more your thing? Head to Bicester on Sunday 26 September to be entertained by this motley crew! Be prepared for foot-stomping fun with Captain Nicholas Moffat and his lively band of 17 musicians from around the world, bringing traditional tunes ashore for a sea shanty and Celtic reels musical feast. Find the latest timings @BicesterFestival on Facebook and on our website www.BicesterFestival.org

The Old Time Sailors will also be involved in our Sea Change parade later on Sunday 26 September. Celebrating our theme which draws inspiration from dramatic environmental and social change, our visual and musical spectacular will meander through the roads and green spaces in Bicester. Look out for our giant mechanical puppets, upcycled pushchairs and decorated bicycles!

There’s so much to look forward to – you’re sure of a warm welcome! Why not stop for lunch or a coffee in one of Bicester’s many cafes, or pop into an independent shop for some retail therapy while you’re here?!

Building on 20 years of touring the world as a Strong Lady, this new show is surprising, funny and full of hope... an optimistic declaration that…
