Residents can get into the Christmas spirit, and maybe pick up a gift or two at The Oxfordshire Museum as the special festive exhibition returns.

The Oxfordshire Craft Guild’s Christmas Exhibition showcases some of the best art and craftwork by leading craft makers and designers from across the county and runs until 23 December when it takes a short break, returning for two days after Christmas on 29 and 30 December.

Councillor Neil Fawcett, Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Cultural Services said: “This annual event is always a firm favourite with visitors keen to pick up a special Christmas gift or simply take a look at some of the finest work by members of the guild. A wonderful opportunity to support some very talented local artists and craftspeople.

“There is a range of over 30 crafts on display with handcrafted gifts, all locally produced, including jewellery, ceramics, glassware, sculptures, artwork and scarfs to name a few.

“There is plenty on this festive period over at the museum to enjoy, including a family Christmas trail and quiz. The shop is full of stocking fillers and the café will be serving hot chocolate, mulled wine, mince pies and gingerbread reindeer – so do try and go along and see for yourself.”

The Christmas craft exhibition is open every Tuesday to Saturday 10am - 4.45pm, and on Sundays 2pm - 4.45pm until 23 December. The exhibition then reopens after Christmas on Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30 December, 10am – 4.45pm.
