The aim of The Friends of Abingdon is to help to retain what is good in Abingdon and the surrounding area and to work towards making it a pleasant place to live both now and in the future.  We are keen to cooperate with other groups in the interests of all.

The Society was founded in 1944 and, since then, a major project has been the renovation and management of the once derelict Abbey Buildings, now much used and enjoyed as a theatre and venue for craft fairs, wedding receptions and other social events.

The Abbey Buildings are open to the public from 1st May to 30th September on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays from 2pm to 4:30pm.

If you would like to visit at other times or bring a group, please contact the Curator  on 01235 525339.
