What we do

Oxford City Council's Culture & Events Team is dedicated to supporting, encouraging, and facilitating events and filming held on Oxford City Council land. We are here to help organisers with the application process and to support you with your plans. Together with our partners across the city, we facilitate more than 300 events in Oxford every year. We are keen to enable and support events that:

  • contribute to Oxford’s sense of community and belonging
  • improve health and wellbeing
  • help to support the local economy
  • provide a platform and employment for local artists and suppliers
  • celebrate inclusivity and diversity
  • work well with Oxford’s unique identity as a culturally rich and vibrant city
  • have an understanding of environmental impact and look to be sustainable, recognising Oxford City Council’s aim to be a zero carbon council by 2030 
  • provide opportunities for our residents to develop new skills, interests, and friendships
  • bring communities together across the whole of Oxford
  • help Oxford to be recognised as an events-friendly and vibrant city both nationally and globally


If you are interested in holding an event on our land, please contact the Events team and provide us with some initial information on your event, potential dates and preferred location.
