About us


The first Bloxham Festival of Faith and Literature took place over a weekend in October 2011 at St Mary’s Church, Bloxham. It was the idea of Sir Tony Baldry, MP for North Oxfordshire and the Second Church Estates Commissioner, who lives in the village, and was hosted by the Revd Sarah Tillett, then Priest-in-charge of Bloxham with Milcombe and South Newington.
