Wadham College, founded in 1611, is an ideal venue. Located in its own extensive grounds and gardens, away from the bustle of the city, it is nevertheless only a couple of minutes from the historic heart of the University: the Sheldonian Theatre (a masterpiece by Sir Christopher Wren), the Bodleian Library and the Radcliffe Camera. Blackwell’s world-famous bookshop is just as close.
The College itself boasts one of the finest Halls in Oxford, and a magnificent Chapel with spectacular and rare 17th-century stained glass. The Conference will have as its main auditorium the Holywell Music Room (1748), possibly the earliest purpose-built concert hall in Europe, and it is here too that the music recital on the first evening will be held. Wadham also has fascinating buildings and rooms on a much more domestic scale, and these will provide the venue for panel discussions. Delegates will also be able to enjoy the extensive and peaceful College gardens.
