#StandUp4Edu at Folk Weekend Oxford

This weekend, Oxfordshire NUT continued our weekly Stand Up for Education stalls in a new and different way.

We were proud to be the sponsors of the Folk Weekend Oxford 'Family Festival'.  We supported the 'Offshoots' schools concerts, where children from Windmill, St Andrews, Wolvercote, Marsh Baldon, Garsington and West Kidlington Primary Schools performed, and also the excellent family Ceilidh with the superb What's up Folk! from John Mason School.

The events were stewarded by Oxfordshire NUT volunteers who also had Stand Up for Education material available:

Over the weekend, 58 new supporters signed up to the campaign and many more took away information.  Most importantly, it was a great showcase for talented young musicians from Oxfordshire's schools.

Well done to all involved!
