Upcoming events – 2019

Summer Visit to Ladbroke
Thursday 20 June, 2pm

Starting from the Village Hall, the visit will be led by two local historians who will explain the historical background of the village and its church.  We will spend some time in the church learning about the fascinating history as well as taking a short circular walk around the ancient settlement.  The afternoon will conclude by returning to the Village Hall to have a natter, enjoy a cup of tea and some delicious cake.
For those who would prefer not to join the circular walk there will be cars on hand to take visitors directly from the Village Hall to the church and back.
There is free on-street parking as well as some places at the Village Hall.
The Village Hall is situated in Banbury Road, CV47 2BY, and is to be found on the right if approaching from the Banbury Road, A423, almost opposite the Bell Inn.
Tickets £10 to include afternoon tea.
