Oxford Clean Rivers Fest

Saturday, May 25, 2024 at 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Sick of sewage pollution in our river? Come and make your voice heard!

Oxford Clean Rivers Fest will take place on Saturday, May 25th, at the picturesque Longbridges Nature Park adjacent to the Thames, a mile south of the centre of Oxford. Taking place during the popular Oxford University Eights Week rowing races, the festival will celebrate the beauty of the River Thames while calling for action against sewage pollution.

The Festival will have a family fun atmosphere with live music from the XR drummers and Trevor Williams; entertainment, and engaging talks from River Action, The Henley Mermaids, Annelise Dodds and more. The festival centres around the state of our rivers, prompting participants to pledge their commitment to the restoration of these vital natural resources.

The event will run from 12pm – 5pm and promises to be both educational and entertaining, offering attendees the opportunity to learn more about our wonderful river and how they can play a role in its restoration.
