Meeting Minds: Oxford Alumni Weekend 2017
Join us in September across three days of stimulating talks, tours, tastings and performances.
Inspirational alumni speakers:
Hear from Ruth Hunt (St Hilda’s, 1998), Chief Executive of Stonewall, on meritocracy; Lionel Barber (St Edmund Hall, 1974), Editor of the Financial Times, on fake news; Helen King (St Anne's, 1983), former police officer and Principal of St Anne's College, on why policing matters and many more.
How do we mend broken human organs? How can humans and wildlife live together peaceably? What happens when we ignore our circadian rhythms? How are we still linked to the Reformation? The answers to all these questions and more will be discussed by expert Oxford researchers.
Tours and activities:
Explore the Oxford of CS Lewis and Tolkien, try hand-press printing at the Bodleian or join a bat walk in Wytham Woods. Our range of guided tours offer the opportunity to see the city from a different perspective and see behind the scenes at Oxford's museums and libraries. These popular sessions always sell out quickly so book early.
Booking opens in late June.
