Oxford Foodies Festival is returning to South Park in Oxford after an enforced absence last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The event, from August 28-30, Bank Holiday weekend, could attract thousands.

The last event - the 10th - took place in 2019 and organisers say this year will be the biggest celebration yet of top chefs, tasty food, delicious drinks and live music, with headliners Scouting for Girls and Toploader.

Tickets are now on sale.
