"Stories through Objects": New Series for Hospital Radio

Over the next few weeks, the Rumble Museum is making a series of shows called "Stories through Objects" for Radio Cherwell, the Hospital Radio Service.

Each show will explore a different story, and use objects from our collection and songs to journey through the themes, characters and places in the stories.

The shows are aired every Friday from 1.30 to 2pm, and then repeated on Mondays at 1.30pm. You can listen to these shows on the Radio Cherwell website. We make the voice recordings, playlists details and objects featured available once the live shows have aired. Please see below for the shows.

Robin Hood Community Cafe

From September 2020, we are opening the Robin Hood cafe, based in St Alban's Hall on Charles Street.It will open to the public every Saturday from 2 until 6pm, and serve hot and cold drinks, and snacks.

The cafe will be themed on the history of the 'Robin Hood' area of East Oxford, with old photographs and artefacts displayed on the walls. We are very interested in any stories people might have of the area, and for those who would like to share them, we can record these and make them available for others to listen to. Similarly, we would love to see any photographs and objects connected to the area, and can make digital galleries of these for those who would like that.

While the cafe is open, visitors will also be able to pop inside the historic building of St Alban's Church.

All ages are warmly welcome, and we will be posting an opening date soon!

The address is:

St Alban's Hall, Charles Street, Oxford, OX4 3AH

The cafe is drop-in, with no need to book  in advance.
