Oundle on Show - Music & Performing Groups

Saturday 8 & Sunday 9 July

A weekend-long celebration of exceptional local amateur performers, skilled artists and amazing gardeners, Oundle on Show will feature inspiring performances, an art exhibition and tours of some of the town’s finest gardens. It will also aim to encourage wider participation in the organisations involved. As you go from concert to concert, make time to take in Oundle Open Gardens (Sunday 9 July) and the Nene Valley Artists exhibition.

Running concurrently with the Festival events are Oundle Horticultural Society’s Annual Show in the Laxton Long Rooms of Oundle School, Oundle Museum’s display of ‘Oundle in the 1940s’ and the Saturday morning Farmers’ Market.

Free admission to all events. Voluntary retiring collections.

This is a major showcase of some of the area’s wealth of amateur performing talent. The weekend concludes with a celebration concert by the Rusty Players of Oundle, featuring the ultimate grand finale (with the help of the audience!) followed by Oundle’s Big Afternoon Tea! Feel free to pop in and sample as much or as little of the performances as you like. Schedule subject to change: please check back for updates on this brilliant event!
