Illustrator Sarah Edmonds is creating a town – come and help her build it! Visit the town’s Information Centre here at the Museum to explore its landmarks, meet the locals and add your own suggestions to the noticeboard.

Alphabetown is an ongoing project, with a building, location or character for each letter. It made its first appearance in Worthing last year, and this exhibition will build on the artwork created, using Oxford’s streets, canals and hidden gems as its inspiration.

Visitors are encouraged to become architects as well as tourists and add their own points of interest to the growing town. What places or spaces would you build if you could invent or improve a town? This interactive exhibition is a journey into Sarah’s colourful mind, with building blocks to play with, postcards to send and workshops to take part in.

Put on your hard hat and let your imagination run riot! Suitable for all ages.
