Saturday July 3rd

Festival Fever
As Phil Mercer enjoys all the fun of Cornbury Festival, Joel Hammer took the reins of the Saturday Breakfast Show.
The first weekend of July sees a host of weird and wonderful festivals going on and we caught up with a few of the people involved.

Giddy up!
First up we spoke to Verner Wass who is organising the Banbury Hobby Horse Festival running over the weekend.
She told listeners all about the performers including:the Sailors Horse from Minehead in Devon, one of the great traditional groups, and bringing things more up to date will be the performance artist Matthew Cowan and his hilarious 'Four Hobby Horses of the Apocalypse'.

From Horses to rugby (not wigs!) as we spoke to husband and wife Kate and Andrew Stinchcombe-Gillies, about this year's Rugfest in Wallingford.
The event is organised by Wallingford Rugby Club as a club fundraiser and as a family centric community event. Largely promoting local bands and local breweries with local sponsors for local people; this year's event introduces a Friday night session to kick start proceedings.
The fabled Scotsman, Jackie Leven, will headline a mellow acoustic evening on Friday followed by a lively day of activities and performances on Saturday - jam packed with local bands such as Quadrophobe, Spring Offensive and Jessie Grace.

Cowley Road Carnival
Cowley Road Carnival is back.... for the whole weekend.
There's a Fiesta in the Park (open air concert not small car) today, followed by a carnival proper tomorrow.
Joining us in the studio was Stuart from Horns of Plenty, which are taking part in the parade, and the Chair of trustees Paul Wolf.

Oxford United Fun Day
Kelvin Thomas, Chairman of the newly promoted U's, joined us to tell us all about the great activities and events going on at the fun day at Kassam Stadium today.
Joining in on all the fun will be BBC Oxford's own Jerome Sale.
