Pitt Fest
Pitt Fest: Handmade!

Saturday 5 September 2015, 11.00-18.00 (FREE)

Join us at our third annual Pitt Fest celebrating the global creativity and ingenuity represented in the Museum’s collections. We’ll be on the University museum’s lawn, with a host of friends and special guests, offering the chance to get interactive and hands-on with crafts from around the world.

Last year we had (deep breath) Oxford Ukuleles, Brazilian carnival band Sol Samba, spoon percussionist Jo May, historical instrument specialists Waytes & Measures, Lunas Dance, a jam-packed Family Crafts Village, bell making with Oxfordshire Museums Service, traditional folk games with Folk Weekend Oxford and Abingdon Aunt Sally Leage, Salisbury Museum’s mosaic challenge, carrot recorder making, survival techniques with Axe & Paddle Bushcraft, pump drill making with Friends of the Pitt Rivers Museum, boat carving with Simon Clements, performances galore…and face painting!

We’ve invited some of Oxfordshire’s best street food vendors along and they’ll also be a craft market selling artisan products from around the county and beyond!
