On Friday 29 September, the University of Oxford will take part in its first European Researchers’ Night. The Curiosity Carnival will be the biggest public engagement with research event in Oxford so far.

The Curiosity Carnival is all about celebrating, debating and questioning the way that research affects all our lives. It’s a unique opportunity for people of all ages and interests to enjoy an amazing programme of research-related activity – most of which is free to attend.

On the night events will take place across the city, in seven venues and even in the streets of Oxford - with bite-size talks, music, walking tours, live demonstrations, games, acrobatics, and much more.
