Festival of Social Science

Two days of fascinating, free, family-friendly events at the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford

The Festival of Social Science is a fantastic opportunity for children and grown ups alike to get hands on with fun and engaging activities, peek into the world of research and learn something new about our world - there will be singing, crafting, exploring, family tree building and much more!

The festival is an annual, free, family-friendly celebration of creative, engaging, and impactful work that social science researchers do to help us understand and influence the world around us. Now in its 21st year, we are excited to return on Friday 27 and Saturday 28 October 2023, in half term, with a bang! 

It takes place across the UK, and you can join us at the Pitt Rivers Museum to see what we have on offer in Oxford. This year, our activities are being run by researchers from Oxford University and Brookes University, and will focus on lifelong wellbeing, exploring mental and physical health at all ages. 

We would love to see you there!
