Exhibitions & events

Saturdays, ongoing: Tours of Oxford’s magnificent Town Hall take place twice a month on Saturdays at 11am. These are a great opportunity to see behind the scenes and to learn about the building’s fascinating history. The next tours are on 9 and 23 December. Find out more here.

Wednesdays, ongoing throughout the winter: local historian and author Mark Davies will lead a weekly walk, The Real ‘Alice in Wonderland’ Winter Meadow Walk, concluding with a decadent afternoon tea at The Folly restaurant, Folly Bridge, Oxford. This leisurely 90-minute circular Wednesday afternoon stroll will follow in the footsteps of the real Alice Liddell and Lewis Carroll, taking waterside paths to reveal the surprising amount of historical reality hidden in the Alice books, much of it based on Mark’s original research. Further information, dates and prices here.

Sunday 3 December, 10:30am: local historian Maurice East invites you to join him for a walking tour of Headington. There will be stories of Romans, roads, villas, dubious characters, first division football and nuclear war! Further information and booking here.

Ongoing until Saturday 16 December: an exhibition at Thame Museum, Celebrating 30 Years of Cuttle Brook Nature Reserve. Admission free; further information here.

Ongoing until Saturday 29 June 2024: an exhibition at the Museum of Oxford called Oxford Digs In: Our Food Stories. Working closely with local community groups, Oxford Digs In: Our Food Stories is a project exploring the journey ‘from farm to fork’, encompassing the history of allotments, famous Oxford foods, local shops and markets, cultural practices, feasts and gatherings, and preparing, cooking and preserving food. Oxford Digs In will bring Oxford’s food heritage to life through displays in the museum’s galleries and with a special events programme.
