Friday, September 27: What's the Story - the life of a newspaper at the Ashmolean
1:16pm Thursday 19th September 2013 in Offers and Giveaways
The good people at the Ashmolean have agreed to hand over the keys to the country’s oldest public museum to The Oxford Times.
On Friday, September 27, we will join the staff in Beaumont Street in staging a night showcasing all elements of life on a newspaper which has been representing this city for 151 years.
The free night, What’s the Story, is curated by Music Editor Tim Hughes and will invite visitors to get involved in different aspects of newspaper life - with the emphasis on fun. So there will be drama, art, discussions, silly sports, short stories, experimental theatre, workshops and, of course, music.
The lads from the Truck Store, in Cowley Road, will set up a pop-up shop in a fine art gallery, where they will host sets by Reichenbach Falls, Salvation Bill and The August List. Music-lovers will also be treated to a session run by the Catweazle open-mic night and a PinDrop Performances session with After the Thought, Huck, Flights of Helios and Grudle Bay.
Visitors will even be able to try their hand at reviewing the event - and even printing a page.
Live Friday: What’s the Story takes place at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford on Friday September 27, from 7-10pm
