THE Museum of Oxford is launching a month-long crowdfunding campaign through Art Happens with Art Fund, to support a future exhibition focusing on life in pubs and breweries.

There will be an event to mark the start of the crowdfunding campaign at Tap Social in Botley tomorrow from 3pm-11pm, with family activities, street food, live entertainment and beer.

The campaign offers exclusive rewards to donors - from limited edition tote bags to exclusive prints and artworks.

The top reward will be a private pre-opening tour of the museum for four, with an accompanying beer tasting in 2020.

Oxford Mail:

The campaign aims to raise £15,000 by tapping into the city’s love of a good pint and a yarn.

As well as physical exhibits like historic pub and drinking items, the museum is collecting pub memories at a series of events to preserve the human stories that go alongside the odds and ends of drinking history.

Mary Clarkson, cabinet member for city centre, said: "There are no half measures in the rewards for this crowdfunding campaign, so I hope that plenty of people will be following the pub-going tradition of putting their subs in the kitty for the museum."
