Saturday 29 July, 10.30 - 16.30
This year we move our annual day-festival inside the Museum and invite visitors to explore the collections via performances, workshops, tours and talks amid the cases. Expect object handling, special guests and live music. Free but keep an eye out for entry information which will be released in the Spring. Join the Facebook group for updates on the programme.
Pitt Fest is a free annual outdoor celebration of the creativity and ingenuity represented by the collections of the Pitt Rivers Museum. Each year the theme is slightly different but always involves a lively mix of participatory workshops, hands-on demonstrations, food and craft stalls, and live entertainment.
In 2015 the theme was 'Handmade' and visitors got involved with face painting, cordage and weaving, capoeira, yoga, storytelling, leatherwork, stone carving, clay modelling, dyeing, giant games, spoons music, ukulele bands, Tibetan and Peruvian food, and more!
We would like to say a big thank you to all the volunteers, collaborators and 3000+ visitors that made this year's Pitt Fest such a success. See you next year!
