Have you ever wanted to roam around a museum at night to witness the exhibits come to life? No need to fear the dark as the Museum of Oxford is teeming with characters from across history throughout at the Rewind Time free family day on Saturday 9th April.
Key players – including St Frideswide, Hardit Singh Malik and Alice Liddell – from Oxford’s history will be populating the Museum interpreting exhibits, hosting workshops and entertaining visitors.
Throughout the day, there will be lots of chances to take part in free activities such as making mosaics, paper aeroplane flying, singing, drawing, dancing, and music in the Museum’s new galleries.
As an extra treat, everyone attending will be given a passport on entry – each character will add a mark to the passport which, when combined, will reveal a secret message. Everyone who finds out the message will win a special prize!
As well as everything going on in the Galleries, there will also be free, drop-in family-friendly workshops led by local creatives. Here’s what’s happening when:
11am-12pm – Make your own balloon crown
1-2pm – Bharatanatyam (classical Indian dance) storytelling workshop
2.30-3.30pm – Confluence Collective interactive performance
All the events are free but booking is advised to guarantee entry on the day.
