Into August, the month when a lot of people go away and there is not so much happening in Abingdon. To dispel that impression three different people have sent me things happening in August.
Wednesday, August 2 – MANCUNIA – Music At The Unicorn, Unicorn Theatre, Abingdon.
Tim O’Connor, a singer-songwriter based in France; Andy Dinan, twice All-Ireland Fiddle Champion; and Maartin Allcock, internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist who has played with the likes of Fairport Convention, Robert Plant, Cat Stevens and Jethro Tull, have joined forces to form MANCUNIA.
Also on 2nd August from 4pm – 8pm there is an open garden at Stonehill Community Garden. They are currently working on half an acre, producing fruit, vegetables, eggs from their hens and honey from their bees and want groups or individuals to get involved. See www.stonehillgardens.co.uk
Weekly volunteer days every Wednesday 10am – 4pm, everyone welcome.
Then ten days later on August 12th is the annual Rugby 7s competition at Abingdon RUFC. Starts 11am.
