Pitt Fest is a free annual outdoor celebration of the creativity and ingenuity represented by the collections of the Pitt Rivers Museum. Each year the theme is slightly different but always involves a lively mix of participatory workshops, hands-on demonstrations, food and craft stalls, and live entertainment. This year's Pitt Fest will take place on Saturday 29 July, 10.30 - 16.30.
In 2015 the theme was 'Handmade' and visitors got involved with face painting, cordage and weaving, capoeira, yoga, storytelling, leatherwork, stone carving, clay modelling, dyeing, giant games, spoons music, ukulele bands, Tibetan and Peruvian food, and more!
Key themes this year include:
- Performance (particularly masquerade and music)
- Traditional crafts
The Pitt Rivers is looking for humanities researchers to give soap box style talks.
