What’s on in Oxford and across Oxfordshire this January

What to do in Oxford and across Oxfordshire.

Hello and welcome to your invaluable guide to what's on in Oxford and across Oxfordshire this January. 

With the festive break well and truly behind us (hope you had a good one!), it's that time to look ahead to what's on in Oxford and across Oxfordshire this January. But, alas, our events calendar is looking decidedly thin, as all of our much-loved entertainment and hospitality venues remain closed, thanks to the national lockdown and efforts to help curb the spread coronavirus.

This is a curated list of the top things to do in Oxford and across Oxfordshire this January. Be sure to visit the What's on section of our 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.

And don't forget, if you would like to have your event listed, you can always contact us.
