On Saturday 22 June we'll be holding a Garden Party in beautiful gardens of The Oxfordshire Museum, just outside out front door!

Our museum galleries, including our recently updated permanent galleries and our trio of brand new temporary exhibitions, Oxfordshire to the Orne: The 80th Anniversary of D-Day, the 10 Year Anniversary Showcase and John Noott's The Art of The Great War, will all be open FREE on the day.

We'll be joined by Second World War living history displays from Ham & Jam and Winstan plus a range of fun family activities, including making Horsa Gliders and object handling sessions.

We'll also be running our 'Behind the Scenes' archive tours, offering at opportunity to access all areas at the museum and see a few of the thousands of objects tucked away in our archives.

The renowned, historic Hook Norton Brewery will be providing a pop-up bar for much-needed refreshmens throughout the day, and from 5.30pm - 8pm Waterloo Band and Bugles of the Rifles will perform live for everyone to enjoy.

Local cadets, Oxford University Officer Training Corps and the Grenadier Guards will also be here with Armed Forces Day stalls and displays, so drop in and show your support!
