A stunning backdrop for a Christmas celebration in the heart of Oxford city. Impress your guests with a very special party at a unique venue.
The Ashmolean offers a range of party packages, with everything you would expect included. All you have to do is invite your guests!
Start your evening with a glass of fizz in the museum’s Atrium surrounded by thousands of years of human history – see the lantern that Guy Fawkes was carrying when he entered that cellar, one of the jewels in the crown of the Ashmolean’s collection – before making your way upstairs for a seasonal buffet or dinner in the opulent Greek and Roman Sculpture Gallery. The night doesn’t have to end here – the museum’s Vaulted Café is available for an after party and comes with lighting, DJ and a bar.
The Rooftop Dining Room is an informal contemporary area for a relaxed Christmas party. It offers space for catching up with friends over a glass before dinner, and a memorable evening can conclude with dancing, complete with DJ and bar.
Take the pressure off finding a venue, caterers and suppliers. The Ashmolean will deliver it all. Our exclusive catering partner creates food with passion, showcasing the best seasonal produce, which is sustainably sourced, beautifully designed and provides an extraordinary culinary experience for your guests. Our trusted partners can add those special touches – magicians, a photo-booth, a cocktail mixologist, live music – to make your evening truly unforgettable.
There are limited dates available, so please get in touch soon to start planning a remarkable experience.
