Update: Coronavirus (COVID-19)

14 June 2021

Vale of White Horse District Council is pleased to announce that it plans to open The Beacon to the public again from 6 September. 

The Beacon will open in September following the news that it will no longer be needed as a symptom-free testing site from 26 June. The centre has played a vital part during the pandemic as one of Oxfordshire’s four sites for residents to get tested and as a place to collect tests from. 

This means the district council has been able to begin making plans to reopen The Beacon as an arts and community centre again. 

All bookings will be subject to change depending on any future Covid-19 government guidance.
