The Wantage side met the Spanish dancers when they visited Spain last year.
Icknield Way squire Peter McLoughlin, 65, who lives in Cirencester, said: “The Sunday in Oxford was fabulous, and the whole weekend was excellent.
“We got some big crowds and lots of attention from tourists.

In Wantage, the Spanish visitors were charmed when mayor Fiona Roper greeted them in Spanish.
