Oxford in the Great War – Walking Tour
Join this fascinating walking tour to learn about Oxford’s largely forgotten role in the First World War. 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.
The tour will be led by Jeremy Allen, writer, from UnderConstruction Theatre.
Meet outside the front gates of the Museum of the History of Science.
