Following on from our popular What’s on in Oxfordshire over the half term post, we thought we’d do a lovely weekly round-up of what’s on in Oxfordshire over the weekend with a pick of some of the upcoming events and activities. We hope you find it helpful and it inspires you to pop over to Mumsnet Oxfordshire to find out about other things to do in your area – or if you know about something that’s happening, do add it for free!
Kid Carpet and The Noisy Animals is a rock band who blast off into space. The animals are a gorilla, a bear, a hedgehog and a badger. Of course! They make friends, play games, contemplate the world and finally rock out at a grand dance contest. Along the way not only will they get toes tapping with their rocky music, but they’ll attempt to enlighten us with all sorts of info.
Nearly New Sale & Children’s Event, Sunday 2nd March, Didcot
10am – 1pm in Didcot civic hall, £1 per adult, children free
40+ stalls ranging from Nearly new stalls and local businesses, that sell or offer services to children and their families.
You can also get some real bargains at this event ranging from children’s clothes, toys, books and shoes to highchairs, cots, car seats, buggies… and more!!
Along with the stalls there will be a face painter and Chipper from the Treehouse playcentre will be popping by to say hello to all the children. There will also be some delicious refreshments on offer.
Day out with Thomas at the Didcot Railway Centre, Sat & Sun 1st & 2nd March
Tickets start at £10, Family tickets available. Book in advance or buy at the door
Thomas and his friends Duck & Diesel and The Fat Controller, Sir Topham Hatt, who will be keeping an eye on everything today. Enjoy rides with them all day and as often as you wish. Thomas the Tank Engine is running on his Branch Line and his friends Duck or Diesel are running on the Main Line.
Sounds ideal for Thomas-obsessed children… and a couple of parents we know, too!
Messy Church, Saturday 1st March, 2-4pm
Wallingford Methodist Church, FREE
We love a free activity and this is a great way to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon. Messy church is a craft based time of fun and informal worship aimed at children and their families/carers. The session involves a range of messy activities; a short break for refreshments, a story, singing and a prayer! It’s free and no need to book!
Open to everybody, all activities optional
Something for Mums to be, too
Or how about a little treat for you? It’s not on this weekend, but you may need to book it soon to take advantage – Maternity Reflexology for just £20! Check out our offers page for more info, and keep an eye on it for any other special deals for Mumsnet users!
