Daily Info's Advent Calendar

Prizes, local gift ideas, recipes, puzzles and festive fantasia


Welcome to Daily Info's Advent Calendar for 2018. Following the success of last year's Quizical Calendar, we have pulled together a tantalising array of puzzles, prizes and present ideas from local sources all around Oxford.

Take me to the calendar!


Cultivate are Oxford's local food co-operative, delivering organic vegetables and produce around Oxford on eco-friendly bikes. They pay producers a fair price (50-70%), source as much as possible within 22 miles, use hardly any plastic and help small producers find a route to market. Helping the local economy by buying and selling locally, and giving 25% of profits to local projects tackling food poverty, why not buy from Cultivate.

This year's big prize is a bumper Christmas Hamper from local produce champions Cultivate. All you need to do to enter the competition is Subscribe to our daily advent calendar updates for your chance to win this fantastic prize, delivered to your door within Oxford!

Charitable season

Every day we'll offer a suggestion of a charity doing good work locally, in case you're looking for a good cause to support. Especially following the success of the Cellar's campaign, it's heartening to know what a difference a strong local community can make.

And more

As well as prizes we'll be offering you recipes, Christmas music courtesy of Oxford college choirs, a specially written Christmas story and more...
