We support the Oxfordshire Blue Plaques Board and the Museum of Oxford.
The Blue Plaques scheme commemorates people from all walks of life who have lived in Oxfordshire and made a significant contribution in their field.
An update on the Museum of Oxford
The new Museum of Oxford is closer to reopening with building work nearly complete. The next phase of installing the exhibitions will take place over the summer. New displays will include items such as a set of metal spikes from the infamous Cutteslowe Walls, a Civil War period gorget and a 1933 rent book from Florence Park amongst hundreds more. The project has focused on architects Purcell and Oxford Direct Services restoring the original 19th Century look and feel of the architecture of the spaces the Museum inhabits in the Town Hall. The specialist team at Workhaus will now fit-out these exciting new spaces with a planned opening for autumn of 2021. Their website has more information about what the team at the Museum have been doing as well as ways to support – https://museumofoxford.org/about-us
