The ultimate community festival returns tomorrow in the cheery, family-friendly setting of Florence Park, east Oxford.

Florence Park Festival – better known as FloFest, returns for its seventh edition, with more family-friendly daytime fun with theatre, music, food, sport and talks, followed by Glowfest – an evening session of live music, DJ sets and illuminations.

FlowFest features a range of activities for families and children of all ages, with free archery taster sessions and a print workshop from Fusion Arts.

Pegasus Theatre offer drama and dance taster classes along with a puppet making workshop and a silly dress up photo booth fun – with bubbles.

The Main Stage at FloFest feature a luscious local lineup of the best Oxford acts headed by the Brickwork Lizards.

Through the afternoon The Owl Light Trio will delight with hypnotic European folk melodies, and Florence Park’s young heroes Collision Theory will keep things moving and grooving.
