Visit the artist in residence on the Southill Solar site

Isabel Wilkinson will be artist in residence at the Southill Solar site on the weekend of 10 and 11 June.

You are invited to come to meet her there on Saturday morning.

Walk among the undulating sea of panels that have inspired Isabel. Talk to her about her work and the fascinating process of using light to create cyanotype prints.

Isabel will follow this with a print-making workshop at the Priory Conservatory, Charlbury on Sunday 10am to 12 noon.

Charlbury Arts Festival comes to Southill

Isabel's residency is part of Festal Favours. This is a programme of performance art, sound installation, experimental printmaking and new writing curated by Clare Carswell of the AYYO gallery for the new Charlbury Arts Festival.  

Presenting 2 weekends of residencies, installation and performance art by 13 artists, it will introduce performance art to the local audience and will showcase new works made especially for Charlbury by major names as well as by younger artists.

Event details

Meet at the Co-Op in Charlbury at 8.45am on Sat 10 June, to share transport to the site.

Booking required for the print-making workshop: see the Charlbury Art Festival programme for details.

Walk to the Southill Solar site

  • Join directors of Southill Community Energy for a walk to the Southill Solar site
  • Meet for a 10.00am departure Sunday 21st May on the Cornbury Bridge

Southill Community Energy directors Tim Crisp, Als Parker and Chris Barras are delighted to invite SCE members to join them on the Parish Boundary Walk to the Southill Solar site. This will be an exciting opportunity to visit the solar farm and learn more about recent developments and the workings of the solar site.

Hear about the the biodiversity and landscape management plans for the site and see the young apple orchard trees recently planted.

View the UK's first Thermosolar hive, helping eradicate the Varroa mite, currently being installed!

Learn about the performance of the solar panel arrays so far and see how renewable energy generation works in action...

You are welcome to bring a picnic and stay on site until 2.00pm. The site is being established as a conservation area for ground nesting birds such as skylarks so we will need to take care not to disturb habitats.

The Parish Boundary Walk is not an established footpath and unfortunately not suitable for buggies. The walk from Cornbury Bridge to the site takes approximately an hour, please wear sturdy footwear!

We look forward to welcoming you on the walk and then on site.

Tim and the Southill team
