Club Day

Club Day was the highlight of the Sibford village calendar during the late 1800s and early 1900s. The Club was a Friendly Benefit Society formed in the same year as the church was built, 1840. Members paid a small but regular quarterly amount of money to the Club Secretary and the resulting funds were used to help villagers and their family in times of illness and need.

In 2007, as a contribution to a countywide celebration of 1000 years of Oxfordshire, the Sibfords Society organised a modern day re-enactment of Sibford Club Day. A narrated video of historical and modern day photographs was made:
