Global folk in Oxford!

As well an annual summer gatherings, we want to make music all year long, so we’re starting a community band for global traditional music in Oxford. If you want to come and join us, get in touch and as soon as lockdown lifts enough for us to make some music, we’ll let you know!

Join the team!

We need volunteers to keep the project going – to organise elements of the events, to help out during the camp cooking, cleaning, being drivers, running activities… Get in touch to talk to us about how you’d like to get stuck in.

We are particularly looking for kitchen volunteers this year to help our amazing head chef Margaret feed our hungry musicians! Get in touch to chat to us about being part of the team for summer 2021!

We love bringing new musical experiences to schools.
