We’re really getting into the swing of these little weekend updates now, but we do hope you check out the website yourself, too, as we only put a selection of things up and there is other stuff happening every day, plus a whole range of things to see and do that aren’t date-based, such as parks, pubs and playgrounds – some with helpful reviews from our users. If you come across something that you’ve experienced that is lacking a review then don’t be shy – tell us what you thought!
It is a fun-packed weekend though – hope you enjoy the variety of the offerings we have!
Oxfordshire Science Festival
A variety of events across Abingdon
Head along to Abingdon to participate in one of the amazing events happening as part of the Oxfordshire Science Festival. From the grown up stuff like “Quantum Biology with Jim Al-Khalili” to fun childrens’ events like the magic-cum-science extravaganza of “Visualise” there is something for everyone, including (our favourite) a number of free events!
Lambing Weekend at the Earth Trust, 22nd & 23rd March and 29th & 30th March
Hurrah! Spring must be here because it’s lambing season and all the wee frisky ones are getting ready to gambol before you.
Lauren and Dan of Little Wittenham Lamb invite you to visit their working farm and see the lambs being born. Craft activities and refreshments available. Wear your wellies!
We’ve also heard that it may be unwise for expectant mothers to go along as all the hormones wafting around can stimulate early labour in humans. Fact or fallacy? Not sure, but check it out if you’re concerned!
