The Rumble Museum, in association with the Arthur C. Clarke Award, is delighted to announce a national science fiction competition for young people who would like to see their ideas turned into a short story by a professional science fiction author.
We are delighted to announce the Iris Festival of the Future on 25th March, 2020.
This event will be a large community event celebrating our Future Season at the Rumble Museum and exploring a range of exciting technologies and themes.
There will be five main discovery zones: Robotics & Artificial Intelligence, Medicine, Architecture and Design, Environment, and Science Fiction. Each zone will contain activities, stalls, exhibitions, workshops, and a wide range of visiting museums with artefacts to handle and explore. There will be robot shows throughout the event, as well as a cafe serving refreshments and hot and cold drinks.
We are running an exciting project to open the historic building of St Alban's Church in East Oxford to the public.
Come and explore the fascinating history, art and architecture of this beautiful building, or simply drop to meet up and enjoy tea and cake at our pop-up cafe!
Each week, we bring different artefacts and activities from our collections to handle and find out about.
The cafe will be running on the following afternoons in early autumn:
Saturday 7th September, 2 – 5pm - Stone Age artefacts & activities
Saturday 14th September, 10 – 5pm (extended opening for Open Doors) - Greek & Roman artefacts & activities

Saturday 28th September, 2 – 5pm - Astronomy artefacts & activities

This is a secular project to open up a historic building, and develop museum learning and community friendship.

St Alban's Church, Charles Street, Oxford, OX4 3AH
The cafe is drop-in, with no need to book in advance.
