IF Oxford featured in Cotswold Life magazine
9 October 2019
Extract from October 2019 edition of Cotswold Life exploring the city through the lens of Alice in Wonderland. This article uses whimsy and humour as a family makes stops at Westgate Oxford, Museum of Natural History, Christchurch and G&D’s picking out some highlights from the IF Oxford 2019 programme:
- The Crowd and the Cosmos, 25 October
- Iguanodon restaurant, 19 October
- Only Expansion, 19-27 October
- Speed dating with ideas, 24 October
- Dozens of free activities for all ages in Westgate Oxford, Oxford Town Hall and Templars Square
IF Oxford will provide opportunities to experience modern-day Oxford, explore the past and think about the future through a collection of 100 events in various venues across town.
