With great music and masses of children's activities, Riverside is one of the most popular events in the Oxfordshire music calendar with families.

The festival is famed for showcasing Oxfordshire's music talent with more than 40 acts playing across three stages, rock, indie, jazz, and folk on the main two stages and all sorts on the Riverside Fringe stage.

HOW TO GET THERE:

On the Saturday there are buses to and from Oxford, Woodstock, Witney, Chipping Norton and Banbury, to the centre of Charlbury, five minutes walk from the Festival.

Sun 16 Aug: "The Lunchbox" - ChOC film of the month

"The Lunchbox" Cert PG / duration 1hr 43mins.

This charming film set in Mumbai, revolves around a mistaken delivery by the Dabbawalas (lunchbox service) of Mumbai. Housewife Ila (Nimrat Kaur) decides to try adding some spice to her stale marriage by preparing a special lunch for her neglectful husband. Unfortunately, the delivery goes astray and winds up in the hands of Saajan (Irrfan Khan), an irritable widower. Curious about her husband's lack of response, Ila adds a note to the next day's lunchbox, and thus begins an unusual friendship in which Saajan and Ila can talk about their joys and sorrows without ever meeting in person. (Shown with subtitles).

" a real charmer of a film: a wry and gently comic drama with a level of quiet observation that rekindles memories of Bill Forsyth in his prime" - Geoffrey McNab, The Independent

Memorial Hall, Charlbury at 7.30pm
Doors & licensed bar from 6.45pm
Tickets: £5 / U15s £3, on sale at the door.
