Welcome

Welcome to our special website celebrating Kidlington and Hampton Poyle 800

This is the time to reflect on 800 years of history in our two villages, celebrate all that goes on now and look forward to the future.  Here are just some of the ways you can take part over the coming year.

Calendar of Events in 2020

Events started with an Epiphany Tea on January 8th but we will have our “official” launch at a special service in St Mary’s Kidlington at 10am on 26th January 2020. Bishop Steven and village community representatives will join us on the theme “Sing a new Song”.

Throughout the year there will be many celebrations – from a Gala Dinner, to Open Gardens, to an Olympic-themed Fete, to various musical performances.  For a full list of dates and events, see the Events page.

If you would like to organise any other event during the year, then we’d love to hear from you.

Commemorative Gifts to buy
