College hosts 2018 Bookfeast festival

More than 1700 primary school children visited St Hugh’s earlier this month, to attend the annual Bookfeast festival.

The festival promotes a love of reading and gives children an opportunity to meet authors and illustrators.

St Hugh’s was delighted to host over 18 events during the three days that Bookfeast was in College.

The BBC reported on the events, charmingly describing College as “like a floral Tardis” hidden away between Banbury and Woodstock Road, and singing the praises of our grounds and gardens. You can listen to the report, and an interview with Bookfeast organiser Celia MacLachlan here (from 1 hour, 9 minutes).
