On Sunday 29th May, Ludwig Oxford took part in the Headington Festival in Bury Knowle Park to engage with members of the Headington community and beyond.

The Headington Festival is a free community festival in Headington run by Headington Action that is attended by 1000s of visitors and features a large number of stalls from local organisations plus a fun fair, live music and more. As it was resuming after two years of hiatus, we had so much fun helping young children discover the basics of DNA via bracelet-making or origami and explaining the consequences of DNA mutations to visitors of all ages.

A huge thank you goes to our volunteers Antonella d'Amore, Hannah Fuchs, Sudipta Ghosh, Alan Jiao, Michael McClellan, Salwa Lin, Felice Wallner, Amanda Wicki, and Claudia Zagami.
