UnderConstruction Theatre’s World War One Walking Tour of Oxford
In partnership with the Museum of the History of Science.
Listen to this fascinating audio walking tour to learn about Oxford’s largely forgotten role in the first global conflict of the 20th Century. Discover how many well known colleges and public buildings were converted into hospitals and for military use; the desperate plight of Belgian and Serbian refugees arriving in the city; plus the formative experiences of key historical and literary figures, including Siegfried Sassoon, Vera Brittain and T E Lawrence. A poignant trip into an overlooked period in the Oxford story.
Running time approx. 90-110 minutes depending on pace.
If you wish to join others on the walking tour led by Jeremy Allen you can join us on Sunday 3 July, where the tour will leave outside the front gates of the Museum at 2pm.
