Oxford May Music is a music, science and arts festival that celebrates culture and human achievements in a truly unique way.  The festival's ethos of combining the very cutting edge of science alongside world class concerts has for the last eight years attracted visitors from all over the world. They come for the wide ranging and fascinating programmes put together by artistic director and award winning violinist Jack Liebeck and renowned particle physicist Prof. Brian Foster.

Our “Friends of Oxford May Music” scheme is vital for the continuing success of the Festival. Friends enjoy a variety of benefits including social events and reserved seating. Please become a friend of Oxford May Music and show your support.

The 2016 Festival is well advanced and we expect to post the programme here around the turn of the year. If you have any questions  please email us (info@oxfordmaymusic.co.uk) or if you would like to add your email and postal address to our mailing list click here.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2016 Festival.
