Celebration Weekend at Oxford House
Saturday 22nd June and Sunday 23rd June, 10am – 2pm
To mark the end of the building works at Oxford House, we are teaming up with Open House Families and Kazzum Arts to deliver a weekend spectacular for families.
Suitable for all ages
Join Oxford House for a weekend of celebrations to mark the 127th anniversary of the building’s opening and the completion of its National Lottery Heritage funded restoration. Discover the stories of Oxford House in immersive exhibitions and create your own story boxes to add to the collection! Families can also take part in a family-friendly tour of the secret chapel and roof terrace with panoramic views of London.
Sine 1884, Oxford House has run activities and programmes for the people of Bethnal Green. Following the repair and restoration of the building, supported by National Lottery Heritage Fund and Tower Hamlets Council, we are ready to relaunch!
Kazzum Arts provides opportunities for children and young people to explore their creativity at times in their lives when they are most in need of support. They believe that creativity is a human right, access to which is never more important than in childhood and young adulthood which is why they work hard to remove the barriers that prevent young people’s creative engagement.
Open House Families returns for the second year running this June as London’s FREE festival of architecture exclusively for children and their families. After a successful festival launch in 2018, the charity behind Open House London is excited to bring back their funfilled weekend of architecture to inspire and excite the next generation of city-shapers, with new additions to the activity line-up making the festival even more inclusive for everyone.
