Adderbury History Association – 19 February

Stephen Barker give a talk in the Methodist Schoolroom starting at 7.15 pm on The Battle of Cropredy Bridge and the Oxford Campaign. Heritage adviser Stephen returns with an account of the 1644 Battle of Cropredy Bridge, geographically the nearest Civil War battle to Adderbury, and shows us how the battle fitted into the Oxfordshire Civil War campaigns.


This year’s Panto celebrated the 40th birthday of the Adderbury’s first theatre group by a very witty re-write by Gary Leonardi and of the already funny Ken Wyman adaptation of Mother Goose, which the group performed for their very first Panto back in 1978.

FOSMA Update

The FOSMA team was very busy over the festive season providing tea, cake and mulled wine for the Christmas Tree Festival and also preparing for the Christmas concert.  The Christmas Tree Festival very generously donated all funds raised to FOSMA so a huge thank you to all those involved. Thank you also to the wonderfully talented Voices Across Time team, Florence Taylor, Joseph Cummings and Harriet Wells, who filled St Marys with joy, laughter and lots of people. Together these events raised well over £5,000. It was a magnificent effort and fantastic boost for the church tower project. We are hugely grateful for all the support we have received.
