On Sunday 2nd June, Ludwig Oxford took part in the Headington Festival in Bury Knowle Park to engage with members of the Headington community.

The Headington Festival is an annual event run by Headington Action that is attended by 1000s of local residents and features >50 stalls from local organisations plus a programme of live entertainment. We really enjoyed demonstrating various aspects of DNA packaging and the effects of DNA mutations to members of the public of all ages.
