    We’re saying #ThanksToYou to National Lottery players with a free book and a 30% discount in our gift shop.

    This year is the 25th birthday of the National Lottery, and we’re excited to be a part of the celebrations by joining in the #ThanksToYou campaign, which celebrates the contribution of National Lottery players in supporting good causes over the past 25 years!

    The Museum of Oxford would love to say thank you to all the National Lottery players who helped generate funding for our brand new museum. Without the support of the fund, contributed to by players all over the UK, the completion of the museum’s Oxford’s Hidden Histories project would not be possible. This funding will allow the Museum of Oxford to showcase Oxford people’s stories and history while highlighting the city’s diverse cultural heritage.

    So, to thank National Lottery players for their support, we will be offering the first fifty ticket holders a free copy of “The Story of Oxford,” a book detailing Oxford’s vibrant history, and a 30% discount in the gift shop. This offer runs between the 23 and 30 November, excluding Sunday 24 November 2019. Please check our full terms and conditions.

    For more information please contact [email protected] or contact us on 01865 252334.

    An illustrated talk by local historian Liz Woolley about the history of brewing in Oxford.Since medieval times, brewing was big business in Oxford. There were dozens of commercial breweries, as well as brewhouses at the colleges, castle prison and, later, at the Radcliffe Infirmary. In the 18th century several great brewing families emerged – the Tawneys, the Halls, the Treachers, and the Morrells.

    We know the cost of this ticket is more than the advertised price, however using this fantastic booking website comes at a cost. We are passing on the handling fee so that you have the choice to book in advance and avoid disappointment on the day.

    Please arrive at the Town Hall 10 minutes prior to the beginning of the talk. This talk is part of our 'Pubs and Breweries' events all to help raise funds for the new Museum of Oxford. You can also help by supporting our Crowd Funding campaign - more information can be found on our website.

    Our third community exhibition will feature stories behind Oxford’s queer spaces. From our local gay and lesbian pubs to printed publications, from support organisations to the Gay and Lesbian Community Centre on St Michael’s Street, we will showcase individuals’ memories and experiences of these spaces through oral histories, photographs and objects. The exhibition has been created in partnership with the Tales of Our City project and Oxford Pride, and co-curated by members of Oxford’s LGBTIQA+ community.
