OXFORD Science and Ideas Festival is being staged later this month featuring more than 100 different events across the city.

The festival, which runs from Friday, October 18 to Monday, October 28 is organised by Oxfordshire Science Festival and trustees with a small team working all year round.

Dane Comerford is this year’s festival director.

The website said: “The festival team coordinates an accessible, thought-provoking and interactive science and ideas festival creating an opportunity for over ten thousand face-to-face interactions between Festival visitors, researchers and innovators.”

One of the events is called Only Expansion, and it will run at Oxford Playhouse in Beaumont Street, from Saturday, October 19 to Sunday, October 27.

Those taking part will be able to experience an audio walk through the city and choose their own route, while headphones with customised electronics capture and manipulate the sounds around them, according to the organisers.

A spokesman said: “Voices of passers-by become a choir, bus brakes create

pulsating rhythms, these might then be blended with desert winds from Tunisia or the crumbling coasts of Norfolk.”
