About the event 

Drop in to collage a quirky card based on the Bodleian’s ephemera collections and print a set of letterpress paper chains to take home.

Craft a shiny gold foil decoration, get into the 'Crease-mas' spirit in our festive origami corner, and enjoy wintry storytelling and carol singing from the Bodleian staff choir.

The Bodleian Café will be selling a range of delicious seasonal drinks and snacks, and the Bodleian Shop is the perfect place to find a bookish stocking filler.

This activity is suitable for children aged 5 and up, but all ages are very welcome. Festive outfits are encouraged!
