This is our third stage for the weeekend.  Those wonderful groups of dancers, singers, players and, errrr, lego figures who cannot get together in person this year to perform live have put together some great videos for us to debut on our Folk Weekend Oxford YouTube channel.  Here is the schedule so you know when to tune in, but obviously if you miss the debuts they will then be available after the weekend.   Click on the links to get more information on the performers.  (Also, see below on how to access the channel)
