Avid for Ovid at Ashmolean for DEAD FRIDAY 30th October 2015

This Friday 30th October Avid for Ovid will be taking part in Dead Friday at Oxford's Ashmolean Museum as part of a special Hallowe'en programme with live comedy, performance, music, workshops and gallery talks.  Put your Hallowe'en glad rags on to explore ghosts and ghouls through history; you can enjoy a drink in the crypt cafe or on the rooftop, have a go at death drawing with Art Macabre; listen to Hallowe'en funk with Porto Flip, meet the dead funny Oxford Imps, and discover more about deathly objects in the collections from curators and researchers from Oxford University.  Avid for Ovid will be in the Cast Gallery embodying some suitably ghoulish characters from Ovid's Metamorphoses - furies, sorceresses, werewolves, ghosts and mourners - as well as casting ancient Roman curses...

Fancy dress is optional, with a prize for the best costume...

Date:  Friday 30th October 7.00-10.30pm

Venue:  Ashmolean Museum, Beaumont Street, Oxford OX1 2PH
