The event will take place on Sunday October 23 at the Blessed George Napier School on Springfield Avenue, Banbury and will run from 10am to 4pm.

Free parking will be available to attendees and there will be refreshments available throughout the day.

Festival chairman Ian Grace said: “It will be an event not to be missed for all new and experienced philatelists. There will be some displays by some of the leading collectors in the Midlands and Thames Valley. It will be a great opportunity to meet fellow collectors, buy some new items for your collections and learn more about the hobby.”
