All Ages

Join Alice in Wonderland as she welcomes Amal, a 10-year-old refugee girl, to Oxford during her journey on foot over 8,000km from Syria to Manchester. Taking the form of giant puppets, Alice and Amal will meet, become friends, and share memories as they walk through the city, joined by dancers,  performers and community groups who will help to create and present the story of when Amal met Alice. The public are invited to walk with Alice and Amal through the city. More details on the route and ways to get involved can be found at (we will create a dedicated Amal page with full details – this is not live yet)

The Story Museum is proud to present this public event as part of The Walk, an international arts and campaigning project in which the puppet Amal will follow in the footsteps of thousands of unaccompanied child refugees who have been forced to take the same treacherous journey. Starting in Gazienter in late July, Amal will pass through 50 towns and cities across Europe, including Oxford on Tuesday 26 October, arriving in Manchester at the end of October.
