brasenose_arts_festival.jpgThe annual Brasenose Arts Festival begins on Sunday 6th May. The festival features six days of open-air plays, music concerts, workshops, poetry readings and exhibitions as well as an outdoor summer bar, all organised by Brasenose students.

Highlights this year include performances of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, A Doll's House and Blithe Spirit; an Art Exhibition curated by Daniel Udy (Fine Art, Second Year); a Zumba workshop; a showing of the film A Clockwork Orange; a ghost stories performance by R M Lloyd Parry (BNC alumnus); an Open Mic evening of impromptu music and a Brasenose Blues Jam; a comedy sketch show with Tommy Peto (PPE, Second Year) and Tris Puri (Modern Languages, Second Year); a Bake Off, entitled "Much Adough About Muffin"; a Life in the Arts Cream Tea, where former Brasenose students now working in the arts speak about their experiences; and last but not least the Arts Festival Cabaret.

The Brasenose Arts Festival is the second-largest arts week event in Oxford, after the Turl Street Arts Festival. It is the culmination of months of planning and organisation by the Arts Festival Committee, headed by Chris Webb (English, Second Year) and Amy Lewin (English, Second Year).
