Discover why cemeteries are geological treasure troves as you investigate the wide range of rock types used for gravestones. Whether you’re an amateur, student or professional geologist, see how almost any urban cemetery can be used for scientific field work, right on your doorstep and at no cost. You’ll never look at cemeteries in the same way again. Geologists Nina Morgan and Philip Powell will guide you around a cemetery near Cowley (location advised upon booking).

COVID security
With a sizable number of staff, performers, volunteers, and indeed the public, not yet fully vaccinated, we encourage our visitors to continue wearing masks and to practice social distancing so that we can all feel safe and protected. We see this as an important step to protecting everyone involved in creating culture in Oxford, and kindly request that visitors remain considerate during this time. In the event of a change in COVID status, the Festival reserves the right to convert in-person events to digital if required and will inform all ticket holders of any changes.
