Enjoy the Marketplace

Abingdon-on-Thames is a market town that still proudly upholds the tradition of the Market Place as a focus of town life. The Market Place is central, easily reached, and is the scene of important occasions like Bun-Throwings and music festivals but also of weekly and monthly markets, fairs and community events. On any day of the week it's a lovely place to drink a cappuccino in the sunshine, catch up with friends or plan a day out in the town and surrounding area.

Christmas Extravaganza on the last Saturday in November culminates in a lights switch on and firework display. 

Local clubs and societies are encouraged to use the area to promote their groups and to fundraise. The Market Place booking forms are available to download at the bottom of this page.

If you are interested in holding an event on the Market Place, please contact the Town Council at or call 01235 522642
