Bury Knowle’s biggest, brightest totally free event!

Come and join the crowds in Bury Knowle Park for the 14th annual Headington Summer Funday?

Saturday 13th July, 2pm – 5pm in Bury Knowle Park

It promises to be another great afternoon in with friends, family… and people you don’t even know. There’s free tea & cakes, a free barbecue, a free bouncy castle – in fact, everything is free!

Will last year’s new attraction the Big Bouncy Assault Course be back? Will the excellent Junk Modelling return?

Who knows, but all the usuals will be there: face painting, big inflatables, bang-a-nail, crazy games, live music, Splat for the toddlers, a Prayer Space tent, and much more.

So why not come along and join in – or sit back and watch with a cuppa – and just enjoy being part of the Headington community!

14th Headington Funday

The Headington Funday has run for the past 13 years. We have faced torrential rain and winds strong enough to destroy gazebos, but usually the weather is fantastic. On those lovely summer days in Bury Knowle Park we expect some 2,000 to 3,000 guests.

It has always been a happy, relaxed atmosphere, with something for all ages.


Facepainting queues are always long!

Sign Up to Help

The Funday works because of some 100 volunteers form the local churches coming along and making the event run with a lovely, gracious spirit. Some start early to set up the site, some stay late to pack away, others man the event itself, and some do the whole day. Can you help this year?
