What’s on this February in Oxford and across Oxfordshire

Hello and welcome to your invaluable guide to the best events, workshops, exhibitions, things to do and what’s on throughout February 2022 in Oxford and across Oxfordshire.

It’s a new year, and February has rolled around once again. Sometimes, the shortest month of the year can feel like a waiting game: the final slug of darkness and freezing temperatures until Spring officially starts in March, and when leaving a self-imposed Netflix hibernation finally seems feasible again.

But February’s actually not too shabby. It’s got the Chinese New Year, romance and Spring half term. It’s also got a range of fantastic events right here on our doorstep - from exhibitions to musicals, shows and attractions. Even the Russian State Ballet of Siberia will be in town to delight audiences with not one, not two, but three ballet performances.

Of course, this is a curated list of the top things to do in Oxford and across Oxfordshire this February. Be sure to visit the What’s on section of the website where you’ll find a full list of events in Oxford and across Oxfordshire as well as unmissable events beyond the county that would make for a great day out.

Got an event that should be on the list? List your event on The Oxford Magazine and reach an engaged audience of people who live, work or place in Oxfordshire. Once again, welcome to your invaluable guide to what’s on in Oxford and across Oxfordshire this February.

Featuring a sensational live band and a hugely entertaining and sometimes brilliantly unexpected selection of tunes, A Night of Songs & Laughter tells Rob’s personal musical journey from South Wales to Hollywood and back.
