Oxford Bridge Festival 04 to 07 September 2017

The aim of this Festival is to put on something different from a competitive master-pointed bridge congress with the accent being on social content, learning and fun.  The aim is to appeal to all bridge players whether members of affiliated clubs or not. 

Participants will be able to choose whether to play duplicate or rubber bridge and will enjoy a range of other activities - a quiz with tea and cakes, two visits to local city-centre attractions, café bridge in the High and dinner in an Oxford college.  There will also be expert help on hand with session reviews and instructive seminars.
