Oxford plant swap at Silvie Cafe @ Silvie Cafe
May 25 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Oxford plant swap at Silvie Cafe @ Silvie Cafe | England | United Kingdom

We are back with the 4th edition of Oxford houseplant swap! This time we are hosted by the wonderful Silvie’s cafe in East Oxford. It couldn’t be easier to take part! Simply bring along a healthy, pest free* houseplant or two, some seeds, some cuttings, or some tiny plant pups and swap them with other houseplant enthusiasts. It’s a great way to discover new plants, as well as new plant pals! Whether you are new to houseplants or have well rooted skills (see what we did there?) we welcome all knowledge levels to come along and get involved. Drinks and snacks are also available to purchase at the venue. (Vegan and gluten free options available)

We have a ticket system in place to hopefully reduce the amount of left over plants – e.g. you bring 3 plants, you get 3 tickets, you can then use these tickets to take 3 plants home.

Our amazing host venue, Silvie, is a lovely cafe that hosts lots of great events such as clothes swaps and a poetry library! You are in for a treat as they provide great coffee and snacks (vegan and gluten-free options available).

*pest free to the best of your knowledge.

What is the best way to ge to the venue?

Yes, parking in Oxford sucks, but buses, cycling and piggy back rides are some great alternatives to driving! But seriously, we are all about sustainability and we want to make it as low impact of an event as possible.

All proceeds from the dog show will go to a shelter, and we may even have adoptable dogs at the market too.

The Oxford Artisan Distillery Monthly Markets:

As an organic, sustainable business that only uses locally grown grain, The Oxford Artisan Distillery would like to support local organisations, artists, individuals, charities, farms and businesses who are doing good things for the community in the form of a monthly farmer’s market.

Our market days feature children’s activities (making sessions, face painting, seasonal craft making activities, gardening activities, etc) as well as food vendors, local bands/music, and a special distillery offering. The market also includes local farm produce and products for sale, and is open to local folks who want to showcase their wares or otherwise get the word out about what they are doing.

Book Club Event with Claire Fuller @ Mostly Books
May 30 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Book Club Event with Claire Fuller @ Mostly Books | England | United Kingdom

Claire Fuller’s latest book, Bitter Orange, is published in paperback on 2nd May and we think that it will make a great book club read.   Claire will be at Mostly Books at 7.30pm on Thursday 30th May primed and ready to talk about her book.

Jellico is dying. A man who calls himself the vicar visits, hoping to extract a deathbed confession.

He wants to know what really happened that fateful summer of 1969, when Frances – tasked with surveying a dilapidated country house – first set eyes on the glamorous bohemian couple, Cara and Peter. She recalls the relationship they forged through sweltering days, lavish dinners and elaborate lies, and the Judas hole through which she would spy on the couple. Were the signs there right from the beginning? Or was it impossible to avoid the crime that split their lives open like rotten fruit?

Everyone is welcome – whether you’re already a member of a bookclub or just fancy the idea of a one-off bookclub-style event.    Come along and join in the discussion.

Tickets are £10 and include a copy of the book plus a drink on the night.  Copies of Bitter Orange can be picked up in advance so that you have plenty of time to read the book.

I help smart, busy women over 40, to lose weight, have more energy and experience an overwhelming sense of well-being.

Discover the ‘Invisible forces of weight gain’ and the REAL reasons why smart, busy women struggle to lose weight.

Do you have the time or headspace to sift through another pile of glossy diet books and ‘wellness’ magazines?

If you’ve tried everything to shift that last bit of weight, or if you are struggling to maintain a happy weight and feel frustrated, exhausted and defeated, I get you!

As a nutritionist I know all about the fads, the supplements and juicing regimes but have come to understand that there are just THREE thingsthat have helped me keep my weight and health stable for years.

I’ve just moved to Oxford from London where I worked with hundreds of amazing women just like you through groups, personalised programmes and at my practice on Harley Street and I’m excited to share with you how to get real, lasting results without silly diets, calorie counting or complicated meal plans.

I’ll help you understand how to shift the weight, how you perceive yourself and give you the tools to take control back from food.

I look forward to learning more about YOU and our discussion together. Space is strictly limited, so let me know how many friends you’ll be bringing!
