From Tuesday 8 to Saturday 12 May Oxford Brookes will be storming the stage at Pegasus Theatre with a series of extraordinary events combining education with entertainment. All Oxford Brookes’ fields of study are represented. Here are some highlights from the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences: The Festival kicks off on 8 May when Oxford Brookes University Modern Languages students and local Oxford school pupils join forces to present Café-Théâtre Parisien, an evening of language, laughter and entertainment with professional actors from the acclaimed Café-Theatre Le Bout in Paris. On 10 May in An Evening of New Writing Philip Pullman hosts a showcase for competitively selected students of the prestigious Oxford Brooke’s Creative Writing MA Programme. Oxford City Poet, Kate Clanchy, will judge the winners, while agents and publishers will be watching, hoping to spot the next Big Thing… Science and poetry are blended together in Science Writes to Life on 11 May: budding poets from Brookes’ Department of English and Modern Languages and professional poets present their original writing inspired by contact with scientists at Oxford Brookes. The winners of the March Science Bazaar poetry competition will also be announced. Entry free to Oxford students, and for non-students all tickets are £5 with normal concessions.
