November in Oxford
Don’t forget that the clocks go back this Sunday at 2am!
Yes, that means that you gain an hour. Instead of spending that extra hour in bed, why not use it to plan what you’re going to do around Oxford this month?
Give the kids something to do on half term with the three day course in making stop motion animation films from 3rd-5th November at St Margaret’s Institute. Aimed at 9-15 year olds, it will teach them a range of animation techniques.
On 11th November results from the BBC Big Personality Test will be presented at Oxford Science Live. Tickets are £5 and we think it will certainly be an interesting night.
Also on the 11th there will be a Remembrance Day Concert at Christ Church Cathedral (8pm). Go along to listen to two masterpieces composed by Mozart including the Clarinet Concerto, played by the 2006 BBC Young Musician of the Year, Mark Simpson.
From 26th November (until early January 2011) the Creation Theatre bring the Mirror Tent back to Oxford with their alternative to pantomime: Rapunzel or The Magic Pig. Suitable for all ages, why not give something different a try?
Friday 26th November is Christmas Night Light. We know it’s still a bit early to be mentioning Christmas, but there is nothing wrong with being organised! For a one-off late night look at Oxford’s Castle, Town Hall, theatres and museums make sure you don’t miss this. The Lantern Procession (6.15pm) winds its way through the city, switching on the Christmas lights as it goes – make sure you wrap up warm!
