Venue, Timing and Cost

Museum of Oxford
Saturday, 30 September 2023
11.00-12.10 & 1.00-2.10pm
£6 for 1 child and one free adult. £4 for every additional adult.
Two women sit in front of a crowd of children holding hand made sock puppets. One also plays a ukulele.

Join Mildred Mangle and Annette L’Aunderette from the Save Odd Sock society, giving pesky odd socks a marvellous makeover - but finding and catching an odd sock is easier said than done! Learn the art of odd-sock transformation and create a sock puppet of your own to take home.

Live music, puppetry and odd-sock shenanigans for ages 3-7 and their grown-ups.

(Materials will be provided but feel free to bring a special odd sock of your own!)

Sessions last roughly 70 minutes each and run at 11.00am and 1.00pm.

Tickets are available to buy via Eventbrite (with a booking fee) or in person from the Museum’s Gift Shop.
