Oxford Open Doors 10-11 September 2016

Put it in your diary! 
This years event will celebrate Music, Chapels and Choirs and the programme is shaping up to be brilliant!
The programme will be available in August so look out for it then!
Oxford Preservation Trust is once again working to protect the green setting of Oxford.

Help us to take on a further 19 acres in the western hills helping to open up the views of Oxford for all to enjoy. We need to raise £40,000 by the end of April – please donate by sending a cheque or email director@oxfordpreservation.org.uk  to discuss further 



Oxford Preservation Trust is a membership organisation. Our work is made possible through the support of our members and to find out more about the different scheme visit our Get Involved page.
