Still kicking in the city and feel like everything has gone quiet? Never fear – not everyone leaves town for the last few sunny weeks and there are still plenty of events waiting at the turn of the season for you to enjoy! We’ve compiled a handy guide to what’s going on around the city over the next month.
If you’re in the mood for venturing into Oxford’s Covered Market to see a very small 3-wheeled car and a modern retelling of an age-old classic, Creation Theatre is bringing Don Quixote to life among the market stalls. Running in the evenings after the bustle has left its corridors, Tuesdays to Saturdays from 23 August – 28 September, this show will see you through into a happy autumn.
Fancy trying your hand at something new? Pitt Rivers Museum is holding Hands On Tabla drop-in workshops where you can have a go on their beautiful Indian drums. Or maybe you have an idea for a story brewing in your mind and need a special place to get inspired and put pen to paper – in that case the Story Museum’s Writer’s Cafe is here for you to escape to every Friday afternoon.
