Everyone an Artist, Everyone a Scientist.

The Playhouse has once again partnered with a team of Oxfordshire-based organisations to bring you a day of creative and inspiring activities as part of Fun Palaces; a nationwide, free celebration of culture at the heart of community.

This year's event is titled Intrepid Explorers¸ and will delve into the many realms of exploration, in partnership with The Curiosity Box, Oxford Festival of the Arts, and children's author Julia Golding.

Jet off into outer space with Oxford Playhouse, and create your very own rocket ship! Be confused and confuddled with The Curiosity Box's concoction of optical illusions, where you can learn to make your very own galaxy in a test tube. Join Julia Golding on a Curious Science Quest with book signings and home-made lava lamps. And join Oxford Festival of the Arts for more arts and crafts activities. There will also be curiosity trails, a soft-play safari reading corner for the really little ones, and a talk from sound artist Renzo Spiteri about his recent exploration of Scotland's Shetland Islands.

It’s all free, and there’s no need to book! Don’t miss this exciting family fun day and your chance to get hands-on with the science of theatre and the theatre of science.

Recommended for ages 5-10, but fun for all the family.
