Carterton Gig-Arts - A Beautiful Winter's Tale

Scores of students from Abingdon and Witney College joined forces with members of the ICE Centre in Carterton to celebrate 400 years since the birth of William Shakespeare. This special Gig-Arts Event had the theme of 'winter' and to demonstrate this, the students created beautiful winter scene artworks and put on a show based on Shakespeare's 'A Winter's Tale.' The Mayor of Witney came to support the event, as did representatives from the Homestead Care Home in Carterton.
