The centenary of the outbreak of world war one in Oxfordshire is remembered in some cultural events in Oxford and the surrounding region.

Chief among them is the exhibition A Great Estate at War – Land, Sea and Air at Blenheim Palace, many of whose owners' family members and estate workers lost their lives in the Great War. The palace is about a 20-minute drive north-west ofOxford, and the exhibition takes place from 15 Feb-21 April. 

Another major event is the re-opening of the Soldiers of Oxfordshire (SOFO) museum at a new venue in nearby Woodstock in the spring. Previously located at an Oxford barracks for 70 years, Oxfordshire’s military museum offers insights from the testimonies of Oxfordshire soldiers and airmen.

10.30- 17.30 (last admission 16.45)
