Save the date - Saturday 12th June - for the return of OakFest.

After the cancellation of OakFest'20 we will all be in need of a great day of live music, delicious food and a pint or two so spread the word and come and join the party.


It is with great sadness that I have to announce that we have made the decision to cancel this OakFest'20.  With school closures and the uncertainty ahead we felt it was best to let people know now.


All being well we will hold a smaller festival in the early autumn so watch this space.


We will be back next year so please put Saturday 12th June 2021 in the diary now and save the date for a huge celebration of music and fun.


Thank you all for your tremendous support  as always and keep safe at this most unusual time.

Fundraising Total for OakFest'19

We are thrilled to announce that OakFest'19 raised an incredible £10,215 for our school, Oakley Pre-School and St Mary's Church.  Thank you again to everyone who made the day such a fantastic success once again.

Well that went rather well!


Thank you to everyone who came along to share our day – another great success for our little school.


Special thanks must go to the team that make it all possible – Pete, John, Kelly, Lee, Amy, Darren and Iris who work their special magic and keep me calm. There are so many other people who are preparing long before the day, come along to help with set up, volunteer on the day and turn up on the Sunday morning to clear down, thank you all so much. It is a joy to see everything come together and create such a wonderfully uplifting event for our school and village.

Thank you too to our fabulous sponsors, without you we couldn’t start to put on the event, your generosity is very much appreciated. Also to our generous activity leads giving their time to keep the little ones entertained.

Lastly I am indebted to our most talented and generous musicians who come along to entertain us throughout the day. Please come back.  


Now we’re looking forward to Oakfest ’20 on 6th June 2020

Saturday 8th June 1.00pm to Midnight -

11 hours of fabulous live music

2019 will bring our 6th OakFest music and beer festival, the biggest fundraising event for our school with £45K raised to date.


Last year's funds were spent on wonderful new Smartboards for our classrooms, a set of laptops and a laptop charging trolley plus many other ICT and Science resources.  This year our main focus will be on the much needed refurbishment of our outdoor areas.


If you are interested in being involved in any way from volunteering a few hours before, during and after the event to sponsoring one of our bands or marquees please get in touch.


Ideas and suggestions on how we can improve our little festival are always welcomed; just email me via the school office -


Finally, please put Saturday 8th June in your diary and join us for another great day of music.
