Every year, All Saints' Church in Headington plays host to a festival of music and the arts, given for free to the local community. This is a series of free events on Wednesday evenings during the Summer, each starting at 8pm in the church. This year their theme is 'VOICES', and they a diverse line-up of vocal performers with weekly concerts from 26 July until 6 September.

Alongside returning festival favourites Katherine Cooper and Aileen Thomson, they have young vocal talent from Oxford, London, and the USA, and of course a concert from their very own choir.

This year's concerts feature: 
  • 26 July - Katherine Jeffries Harris, mezzo-soprano 
  • 2 August - Olivia Lewis, soprano 
  • 9 August - Katherine Cooper, mezzo-soprano 
  • 16 August - All Saints Choir in concert 
  • 23 August - Aileen Thomson, soprano 
  • 30 August - Alistair Walker, tenor 
  • 6 September - Joshua Copeland, baritone 

All concerts are on Wednesday evenings at 8pm, and wine and soft drinks will be served afterwards. This gives the audiences a chance to meet with the performers and discuss their work. A retiring collection will help cover costs.
