This year the festival will take place over 15-17 November and will feature a thematic strand of programming entitled ‘Discovery,’ which is inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing and by scientific innovation and other pioneering achievements. The festival is predominantly free and therefore accessible to all, celebrating Oxford’s diverse cultures and the creativity of our communities.
