The Kidlington Christmas lights switch-on took place on Thursday 30th November and hundreds of people came to enjoy the night and the lights being switched on.

The Kidlington Centre worked in conjunction with the Kidlington Parish Council to provide a fun filled and festive night. There were local school choirs singing on the stage, fair ground rides, entertainers, stalls, many children had their face painted in a Christmas design by a professional face painter and even Santa came along and saw children in his very own Grotto.

Sublime Science

Sublime Science Wowed Again

We had a great time at the Sublime Science Event on Friday 4th August 2017! Sublime Science came back to The Kidlington Centre once again with their amazing talents.

Over 130 children attended our hands on science sessions and made gooey slime, watched rockets being fired and learnt a lot more about air, fire and ice through a range of exciting experiments. In just two and half hours Sublime Science created a truly inspiring world, leaving everyone wanting more.

Our grateful thanks to Slimey Sharon and Sciency Steve for sharing it all with us.

Thank you to all those of you who attended, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we we did.

Our thanks to Centre Manager Kim Martin for his superb photos!
