Potted Histories Family Fun day in Bicester!

Families are set for a fun Saturday with a historical flavour due to Oxfordshire County Council’s Museum Service and Bicester Local History Society having joined together to offer a special day at Bicester Library on Saturday 18th March 2017.

People are invited to come and try a range of activities for all the family to enjoy.

From handling real museum objects; dressing up; creating fictional characters from Bicester’s past for a time capsule; or listening to entertaining short talks on the town’s past by members of Bicester Local History Society; there’s something for everyone!

The event, called Potted Histories, celebrates the opening of a new pop up exhibition in Bicester Library, showcasing real artefacts from Bicester that are cared for at the Oxfordshire County Council’s Museums Service Resource Centre. Drop in on the Saturday, March 18 and discover how fascinating your local history really is.

The event and exhibition are part of a project funded by Arts Council England, delivered in partnership with Oxford University Museums Partnership.
