23rd May OxTrails Free App Launch
The free app will be available for donwload to Apple and Android phones from Thursday 23rd May.
If you're a local who would like to explore more of Oxfordshire, or if you're visting for a while, this fantastic free app is just what you need. Around 300 local businesses and organisations have been included on the Oxtrails as suggested stops and places of interest, market towns have been included as day itineraries. The 5 themed trails have a massive range of activities and sights included, from gliding over the Uffington White Horse, to trading in your home-grown veggies for a slap-up meal cooked by a chef to the stars, to solving a “who dunnit?”, clambering up the staircase of historic buildings to riding a steam train in style... once you’ve got the app staying home won’t be an option.
The app is free and for everyone, the suggested stops range in prices, with nearly half of them being free of charge. In addition, the app will include special offers and events which are regularly updated, including all of the main festivals and traditional Oxfordshire celebrations.
24th - 26th May The Yew Tree's Real Ale & Pie Festival
Main Rd, Conderton, Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire GL20 7PP
The Yew Tree will be serving up a wide choice of delicious pies, with fillings to suit every taste and guaranteed to see you going back for more. A wide range of mouth-watering Real Ales will also be available, and when you tie that all in with live music from some top UK bands such as MISSIN’ ROSIE, THE BLACKWATERS, PETER JAGGER, SAX’N'AXE and TOM GABBOT, a good dose of Summer sun (keep those fingers crossed) and a talented DJ, this is a festival you’d be crazy to miss.
