Saturday August 14th

Cropredy weekend
It's Cropredy festival weekend and surprise surprise the rain gathers over the county.
However, the weather hasn't dampened the spirits as a host of performers spoke to us about what it means to perform at the country's premier folk festival.

Get hooked on fishing
Want to try your hand at fly fishing? Then you can get a free lesson today at Farmoor Reservoir.
There's a day of activities, hosted by the Environment Agency in conjunction with Thames Water, Oxfordshire Association of Young People and the Angling Development Board, will allow the whole family to have a go at fly fishing.
It's for complete beginners or for those that already know a thing or two and want to improve their fishing skills.
Environment Agency Fisheries Officer Tom Sherwood joined us to explain all.

If i said Livestock Festival to you -- you might start thinking pigs and sheep.
But no -- the village of Stratton Audley in Bicester has set up its own music festival, which it describes as "putting the boot into boutique".
So it might not atrract a hundred and seventy thousand crowd like Glastonbury -- but it's got some trully international music and a family friendly day tomorrow.
And it's supporting a great charity -- the Anthony Nolan Trust.
Malachy O'Neill is one of the organisers and he told our listeners all about what's happening.

Getting extreme
Carterton will be alive with skating and BMX competitions today .
Their Extreme Wheels day has become an annual party event -- and it's very much organised by local people.
Adrian Coomber helped put the event together and explained all about the event.

With a host of big acts performing at the festival, we scooped up a handful of them to tell us all about their Cropredy experience so far.
Among those we chatted to were Big Feet, Mabon and Ahab.
