Please enter the event details below. Please allow 2-3 working days before your event appears on the site if you have not posted an event before, as new event submissions will need to be approved.

Important: Please submit only events taking place in (or organised by clubs/societies based in) Stanford in the Vale or the neighbouring villages of Shellingford, Hatford, Gainfield and Goosey. See the map below.

Sorry, but submissions relating to events outside this area will be rejected.

If the event listing on the Stanford website included events from Faringdon, Wantage and further afield then the list would be large and of less value to Stanford residents. Faringdon and Wantage have their own websites with events listings.
