Oxford Christmas Lunch
A lunch run by Oxford Christmas Lunch at the King’s Centre, with food sourced from local suppliers that would otherwise have gone to waste. It’s for everyone who fancies some festive cheer! Head along for food, music, and family fun at the King’s Centre, Osney, OX2 0ES from 12.30pm until 4pm on Christmas day. Transport can be arranged if you need it. Contact email@example.com to book the meal and/or transport.
They are looking specifically for people who are able to do gentle interactive entertainment appropriate for children such as costumed character work (think Sugarplum Fairy!), jugglers, clowns, magicians, balloon-twisters, hair braiders, mime artists, caricature artists, etc.
