Every year the Elder Stubbs allotments in Oxford are opened up to the public for the Elder Stubbs Festival. Activities included music performances, craft demonstrations and exhibits from local community groups. Oxford, UK, 21/08/2010.
The Elder Stubbs Festival is a popular community event which is held every year at the Elder Stubbs Allotments in Cowley, Oxford. The allotments were opened up for the public to walk around and admire, and a wide variety of music, both amplified and acoustic, was performed around the site. Food was supplied by local businesses, and local campaign groups and charities were invited to run stalls, with an emphasis on sustainable and environmentally friendly living.
The festival was jointly organised by Restore, a mental health charity based in Oxfordshire, and the Elder Stubbs Trust, which owns over 100 allotments that are leased to local residents.
