London Volcano comes to Oxford. October 20 – 30, 2015

The London Volcano has been on tour this summer, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Natural Environment Research Council. We have enjoyed open days and events at the British Geological Survey and the Diamond Light Source; and featured  in Einstein’s Garden at the Green Man Festival in Brecon in August – and thanks to the many volunteers who have helped out with this!

Over the next two weeks, the volcano model will take up residence outside the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. There is a programme of activities for schools from 20 – 22 October; and then three afternoons (1 pm – 4 pm) of family-friendly activities around the volcano on 28, 29 and 30th October. The event will close with an explosive finale at 6 pm on 30th October. If you want to drop by to find out more about volcanoes, and take part in some volcano-related activities, we’d love to see you!
