Caterpillars, rabbits and birds: A family workshop about wildlife and words

Loading Events

This event is part of Alice’s Day, an Oxford-wide celebration of all things Alice in Wonderland.

Oxford Poetry Library is delighted to bring you this family-friendly workshop all about poetry and nature, inspired by the flora and fauna of Alice in Wonderland! Spend time exploring the magical and sometimes mysterious world of nature, gather ideas on a wander through Christ Church meadow and return to MOX to write your own poems.

Part of this workshop takes place outside; we recommend dressing appropriately for the changeable Oxford weather. This will involve a walk of approximately an hour around Christ Church meadow. The route is suitable for wheelchair users. Please contact Charlotte Drohan  if you would like to discuss any specific access requirements or concerns.

The schedule will include short comfort breaks; families are welcome to eat in the Museum Makers space. Food and drink will not be provided.

Children must be supervised by a parent or carer at all times. We recommend this workshop for children aged 7 and up.

Due to workshop capacity, we can only offer one free adult place per paying child. This is included with the the ‘one child’ ticket. We have a limited number of additional adult tickets for sale, valid only with a paying child ticket.


There is step-free, level entry access to the Town Hall is via the entrance closest to Carfax (to the left of the main steps as you face the Town Hall). Inside the Museum, Museum Makers is accessible via a platform lift to the Galleries and then via stairs.

Accessible toilets are available in the Museum (close to Museum Makers) and in the Town Hall on the ground floor, before entering the Museum. Please contact the Museum team if you’d like to talk to a member of staff about your access requirements. Further access information can be found on our website:

If you any questions about access or would like to discuss how we could make your visit more accessible, please contact Charlotte at
