StoryFest 2017 was Readathon Milton Manor

In 2014 the first Oxfordshire Read-a-thon was held in the grounds of Milton Manor close to Abingdon and Didcot.  After three very succesful years, Read-a-thon is back, but this time it’s called StoryFest.  We will have all the familiar activities and some new ones as well.

This page just gives you a flavour of StoryFest.  To find out more visit the Story-Fest Facebook or Twitter sites.
