Heads up… what’s on

We try hard not to use this blog simply as a promotional tool for the Museum’s events, but thought that when a new quarterly programme is published you might like to know so you can have a look and pick out anything you fancy.

Oct-Dec prog coverSo this is just a short post to let you know that the October-December programme is now out. Highlights include a headline runway show for Oxford Fashion Week, on Saturday 8 November, with designs inspired by the beauty and variety of Birds of Paradise.

We have some Arctic-themed activity later in November, with the Northern Lights late night event for Christmas Light Festival on Friday 21 November, and a special talk by Museum director Professor Paul Smith, The Arctic – A Natural History, on Tuesday 18 November. Free tickets are available now.

Attachment-1Finally, there was a late arrival that didn’t quite make it into the programme leaflet, but is not to be missed: Dave Goulson, founder of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, will talk about his latest work, A Buzz in the Meadow, on Thursday 9 October. Tickets can be booked here, and a limited number of early bird tickets include a behind-the-scenes tour in our entomology department.

With plenty of family events too, hopefully there’s something for everyone in the programme. If you’d like to be added to our general mailing list just drop me a line at communications@oum.ox.ac.uk and I’ll add your email address.

Scott Billings – Public engagement officer
