Family History Fair - Saturday 1 October 2016

Welcome to the OFHS Fair 2016

Our 2016 Family History Fair will again be held at The Marlborough School just outside Woodstock.

As usual it will run from 10am to 4pm.

This venue has a generous flat exhibition area and ample car parking. The accessibility has been appreciated, and remarked upon, by both exhibitors and visitors alike.

The Family History Fair will feature the usual assortment of visiting Societies, publishers, dealers in second hand books and postcards, and the like. The stands will be spread across both the Marlborough Enterprise Centre (MEC) Hall and the adjoining Sports Hall.

Our own Society's range of transcripts and search services will be available for consultation, whilst we will also be manning a beginners' helpdesk. Additionally, there will be computing advice on such things as which genealogical software package to choose, and the use of the internet in family history.

Please visit this page regularly (or fill in the box at the foot of the page to be notified by email when changes are made) as we confirm all the services and stalls that will be on offer to further your family history research.

A range of delicious hot and cold food, cakes and teas/coffees etc, will again be provided by Wendy of Good Food Catering which received many compliments at the 2015 fair!

Free on-site parking and free admission to the Fair, don't miss it!.

How to get to the Marlborough Enterprise Centre

See our new page of directions

On-site Car Parking


There are several car parking areas at the school, which are used will depend on the weather conditions on the day.
The car park stewards will point you in the right direction.

There is disabled parking immediately outside the MEC.


It will be possible to get close to the hall early in the day for unloading, and at the end of the day for loading up again.
The spaces close to the MEC will be needed for disabled access during the day.
Please move your vehicles either to the main car park or to one of the spaces on the 'entrance loop' if you need access to stock during the day.
If in doubt, speak to one of the car park stewards.
