Mayor Cllr Fiaz Ahmed said: “Everyone I spoke to was having a good time. There was plenty to see and do and eat and drink – and I think everyone went home with lots of happy memories. I know I did.”

The programme included funfair rides, arena displays, charity stalls, ferret racing, go-karting, crazy golf, climbing wall, plus a bar and food and drink stalls.

The School for Stars

Huge crowds gathered around the arena to see great acts including Stagecoach Theatre Company, School for Stars, North Oxon Academy Funk Band, and K&H Falconry’s birds of prey display.

Cllr Ahmed said: “It’s a beautiful park – a marvellous setting for a party – and it was my great pleasure to see so many people enjoying themselves.”

He added: “The weather was good – except for the last hour when the rain showers arrived.”
