Chipping Norton

'Formed in 2005, we are well established amongst the other national societies and enjoy a strong, enthusiastic membership of all ages and abilities, the group being administered by a core committee ... We try and observe whenever conditions and other commitments allow and invite everyone to join us under the stars. Regardless of the weather, however, we also meet once a month in Chipping Norton for a talk by a professional astronomer or CNAAG member and a warm welcome is guaranteed if you care to come along.'

'Chipping Norton Literary Festival is created and run by volunteers. All the fizz and sparkle of the Festival days is a result of year round tireless work by a small army of people who put their enthusiasm and skills – and above all their love of books - to work for their festival and their community.'  Normally held Mid April.
