Students, staff and Oxford Brookes’ wider community enjoy a range of events

Open lectures with influential guest speakers, art exhibitions in the Glass Tank and documentary screenings are amongst the regular free activities at Oxford Brookes open to all. In recent months, the University has hosted many engaging and educational events.

  • Thousands of people joined staff and students for the tenth Brookes Science Bazaar in February 2018. Children and their families took part in a wide range of activities ranging from competing for the fastest laps in the Oxford Brookes Racing simulator to hands-on activities exploring the world of modern paramedics. The bazaar will return on Saturday 23 February 2019.
  • A performance by rock band Delta 7 kicked off the 16th annual Oxford Human Rights Festival. The band members from Eastbourne all have learning disabilities and formed the group to express themselves and challenge stereotypes. They were the perfect way to kick off the festival which is organised by students at Oxford Brookes.
  • Bestselling author Philip Pullman was just one of our fascinating guest speakers his year. Speaking just after the release of the first volume in The Book of Dust series, Philip was in conversation with Professor Simon Kövesi, Head of English and Modern Languages.

  • In May 2018, the University showcased exciting and impactful teaching and research from the humanities and social sciences as part of the week-long Think Human festival. Across 40 different activities, attendees engaged with topics as diverse and divisive as Brexit, criminality in the internet age and food writing. Pictured are Oxford Brookes Chancellor Dame Katherine Grainger PhD and Professor Anne-Marie Kilday.
