IF Oxford returns in 2023 with events from 06 to 29 October 2023. Visit 31 venues in Oxford for in-person science and ideas events or connect to the online events from anywhere.
There’s something for everyone, with activities for young children and families and sessions for teenagers and adults to enjoy alone or as a group in venues across Oxford. It is very much a festival with a wide public appeal.
IF Oxford or Oxford science and ideas Festival is a thought-provoking and interactive science and ideas festival that creates an opportunity to bring together hundreds of researchers with thousands of people every year – with science, ideas and creative activities for everyone to explore.
IF Oxford 2023 brings together a brilliant programme of events, including:
IF Oxford is a powerful way to bring people together – inspiring curious minds of all ages and backgrounds to access and help shape new ideas. It is organised by Oxfordshire Science Festival, with trustees and a small team that work year-round to produce the Festival, which began in 1992.
IF Oxford uses Pay What You Decide (PWYD) ticketing – so you can choose to pay whatever you want or can afford. You can make your donation during booking or after the event, and the amount you pay is up to you. A suggested donation of £5 per person for each event enjoyed will help secure the future of the Festival.
The IF Oxford programme of activities takes place at various venues across the city. Kindly visit the festival website for further details about dates, times and locations for individual activities.
