Names Not Numbers (NNN) presented by Editorial Intelligence is a boutique conference which returns to Oxford for the second year running. The speakers range from Ruby Wax, John Hegarty to Marcus du Sautoy, and the conference is partnered with the likes of Vodafone and the Bodleian Libraries, combining a mixture of short talks, walks, performances and salons.

The tickets are for an hour long talk from 11.30am – 12.30pm on Monday, so make sure you are available. Winners will be informed by email or text.

There is another week of diverse, exciting and edgy shows at the Burton Taylor studio.

To begin the week, on Monday 26, dance artist Gabriele Reuter and composer/sound designer Mattef Kuhlmey mixes practical demonstrations, fascinating experiments and expert interviews in The Amplitude. Part lecture, part performance this is an exploration of how acoustic waves work and how they shape the empty space around us.

Second up on Tuesday and Wednesday is a double whammy, with a different performance across two nights from Weirdos, a bonkers comedy collective, likened to a modern day comic strip and with some chortle award nominations thrown in. Bringing their unique performance style, they will tackle one of the best relationships in British TV history, as Del Boy attempts to save Rodney from hell in Only Fools and Horses and Horses and Horses and Horses and Horses (27) followed by a brand new and extremely unofficial musical about Oxford’s rock legends in The Unofficial Supergrass Musical: The Musical (28).

Giffords Circus has announced that the final show of their phenomenally successful Painted Wagon tour will donate its entire proceeds to Maggie's Cheltenham Cancer Care Centre. This is a charity that is particularly close to the circus' heart as Maggie's supported Giffords Circus co-founder Nell Gifford earlier this year during her treatment for breast cancer.

Giffords Circus' charity performance will take place on Sunday at 5pm at the circus' HQ, Fennells Farm, Stroud.
