With no ‘days out’ allowed this half-term the British Motor Museum is offering families a range of free fun activities to enjoy from home as a welcome break from home-schooling! These February activities explore future fuels and are available online from the Museum’s website. Children can take part in a Wordsearch, a fantastic fuels quiz, and even watch a Science Show!

As it looks like the Museum will have to remain closed for longer than it hoped, it will continue to bring new family activities online each month until it is allowed to re-open. March’s activities will be themed around Woman’s History Month and April will focus on the 1921 London Bus, which is on permanent loan in the Museum’s collection.

For families with children aged five and under the Museum’s regular Mini Motorists will still take place on the 3rd Monday of every month, but for now these are being delivered as a live story-time on Facebook. This month they will be a storytelling of Chris Van Dusen’s ‘If I Built a Car’ live on the Museum’s Facebook page at 11am on Monday 15 February. The theme for 15 March will be ‘Ready, Steady, Go’ whilst the theme for 19 April will be ‘Bessie is our friend’.

Videos of all the Museum’s stay at home activities dating back to last year’s lockdown can be found on the Museum’s YouTube channel.

The Museum is also delighted to announce that in recognition of its focus in making the Museum more accessible to families, it is a finalist in the Ankle Biters Awards 2021 for Warwickshire in the 'Best Museum' category. The Museum would love to encourage people to vote by following this link by 28 February. Voting is completely free of charge!

Emma Rawlinson, Life Long Learning Officer at the British Motor Museum said “We are delighted to host a range of fun activities for visitors to enjoy from home over the February half term and until the Museum can once again re-open. All of our activities are free of charge although donations would be most grateful. As we can’t physically see our visitors we would love them to share photos of their completed activities by uploading them to our website, emailing them to us or posting on our Facebook page!”

Corinne Bailey Rae’s Put Your Records On snap-shotted the summer of 2006. Her most recent release, Black Rainbows came out 2023 and it is obvious to hear how much she is relishing the full range of her unique voice and, as I was to discover when we spoke, her extraordinarily lyrical vocabulary.

Award-winning quirky and alternative comedian Paul Foot is returning to Oxford this month with his new show, Dissolve which is set to be his most vulnerable and honest yet. We got in touch to find out what we can expect from his performance at Oxford’s New Theatre, as well as – in very Paul Foot fashion – getting side-tracked by King  Tutankhamen, and what  Jesus might have  achieved if  he'd been a plumber...
