All are welcome. Come and join us for an exciting evening of Ancient Egypt inspired music, talks, performance and participation.

Egypt has inspired so many generations in so many ways - with the centenary of the re-discovery of King Tutankhamun's Tomb in November 1922, we have brought together artists and researchers to commemorate Egypt and its influence on the world around it. 

Join us for an exciting evening of Egypt inspired performances, games and bite-sized talks at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford - whether you want to hear about archaeology adventures from Egyptologists themselves or play interactive games with researchers.

There will be plenty of time to wander through the museum's Egyptian galleries and meet some modern Egyptian artists displaying their latest work and listen to live music performances inspired by Egypt. 

This After Hours event is part of the Humanities Cultural Programme and also part of the national Being Human Festival 2022.

Organised in collaboration with the Ashmolean Museum and TORCH (the Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities).
