Festival of Social Science

A weekend of fascinating, free, family-friendly events at the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford

The Festival of Social Science is an annual celebration of creative, engaging and impactful work that social science researchers do to help us understand and influence the world around us. We celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2022 and returned with a bang!  

Visitors got involved with hands-on activities on topics ranging from health and the environment to heritage and communities, discovering how social science research is helping to make the world a better place.
