Event description

Description

Join The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH) for a hair-raising late night opening of the museum to explore the art and science of hope & fear with the Being Human Festival. Dress up in your favourite costume and explore the deadly accidents of the Tudors, find out what sets your heart racing, experience apocalyptic performances, encounter weird phobias, and listen to hopeful choirs. With haunting live performances of dance and music, creepy digital installations, film, cheerful workshops, interactive talks and spookacular exhibits.

This diverse and dynamic evening is supported by the Wellcome Trust and is the national Festival Finale for the Being Human Festival, which is supported by the AHRC and the British Academy. http://beinghumanfestival.org/

The evening will be made up of several large performances in the main atrium of the Museum (orchestra, performances, processions etc) and around 30 activities and events throughout the museum, which will include researchers from across all of the Oxford Humanities Faculties, and also from all of the other Divisions of the University (Social Sciences, Material, Physical and Life Sciences (MPLS), and Medical Sciences).

All ages welcomed and encouraged.

FREE, but booking required.

This event is part of the Being Human festival- the UK’s only national festival of the humanities. As our festival events are free, not everyone who asks for tickets come to our events. To make sure we have a full house, we allocate more tickets than there is space. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first-come-first-served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event. #BeingHuman16
