Pitt Rivers ‘AfterHours’

Need, Make, UseAfterHours evenings offer interactive encounters with the collections. Each with its own unique theme, AfterHours presents the chance to explore the galleries - with friends or independently - over a drink from our cash bar and in a childfree environment.

Expect interesting collaborations, live performances, music, object handling, talks, tours and taster-workshops.

AfterHours events are part of Project VERVE's public programme, Need/Make/Use, and they happen regularly throughout the year. Keep an eye on our What’s On pages for regular updates.
