Plan Your Visit

We want everyone to enjoy the Oxford Maths Festival.

Tips for attending:

  • All events are free!
  • Some events require pre-booking. There may still be spaces available on the day, and you are welcome to ask upon arrival, but this cannot be guaranteed.
  • Please note that entry may be refused if the venue is full or if you are late, even if you have a booking.
  • Children under the age of 14 should be accompanied by an adult over 18 to all events.


As this is the first year of the event, we ask for your patience with staff and volunteers. The Festival is hosted in a working department and is run by staff and student volunteers, who are all trying to give you the best experience possible, as well as keeping the event entirely free-of-charge and accessible to everyone.
