Oxford Sanctuary Fair 2023

The University of Oxford is committed to being a place of welcome for people who have been forcibly displaced around the world.

On Thursday 11 May, a free, all-day drop-in Sanctuary Fair will connect refugees, students, and the local community at Oxford Town Hall, open for all to join. 

If you are concerned with the ongoing refugee crisis brought on by war, environmental disaster and beyond, would like to do more to support people seeking sanctuary, either as a student volunteer, campaigner, or in your future career, then come along to Oxford’s first town-and-gown Sanctuary Fair. 

Thursday 11 May, 10:30am - 6:30pm at Oxford Town Hall

The Fair is open to everyone and provides an opportunity to learn more about refugee issues and how we can all make a difference. 

Together with Asylum Welcome and Oxford City Council, there will be panel discussions and interactive workshops featuring students,  academics, activists, politicians, community leaders, and influencers, many of whom have experienced displacement first-hand. 

Stalls from community organisations will give you a chance to meet those who are making a difference on the front line, and to find volunteering opportunities and practical actions to support refugees and asylum seekers in Oxford and beyond.

All are welcome and you can register for the Sanctuary Fair via Eventbrite.
