We have some resources for all ages here all about the Witney Feast, our town's great annual festival going back nearly 800 years!

Celebrate St Mary's Church!

This church building has stood on this site since 1243 when it was re-dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. We invited a local film-maker to make this beautiful short film of the church during the COVID-19 lockdown.


Relive a Previous Feast!

In 1988, the BBC ran an episode of Songs of Praise from the Witney Feast. Why not watch it and see if you can recognise anyone!

The video is courtesy of Paul Cunningham, on YouTube.
