OXIB is in its third year so we are considering expanding and adapting. We’ll have 25 tables in the marquee at the last event of the Oxford Festival of the Arts in the grounds of Magdalen College School. Oxford OX4 1DZ. The entrance to the grounds will be from the Plain end of Magdalen Bridge.
The artist Weimin He has spoken and exhibited at the Indie Book Fair. This is his impression of the view of Magdalen College from the school .

There are lovely walks to enjoy in the area. Here is another Oxford painting by Weimin He. It hangs in the Vice Chancellor’s office.
