Didcot Garden Party is a summer long installation in Didcot Town Square, injecting colour, life and fun into the heart of our town centre.  The Garden Party will feature a range of shows, workshops, showcases, events and installations across every weekend from July 24th to September 4th.  Most activity will take place between 11am - 4pm each Saturday and Sunday, but the Garden Party site itself will be open throughout the week.

The town square itself will be transformed for the Garden Party into a mini-festival site, providing a welcoming and relaxed environment.  So if you want to try your hand out at circus skills, watch a folk gig, marvel at some street theatre, give Parkour a go, take part in an arts workshop or just fancy wiling away the summer afternoons in giant bean bags with a drink of something chilled, we've got you covered.
