Event description

Description

Oxford’s Town & Gown riots can be traced back to at least 1209, when the city’s scholars fled en masse, some going to Cambridge, never to return. Confrontations continued for another seven centuries. Bargemen were prominent in these violent battles, which feature – often with black humour, often on Guy Fawkes Night – in countless novels. It took the arrival of the Oxford Canal in 1790 to inspire a grudging collaboration, through a shared desire for coal in a city renowned for its lack of fuel.

All money raised through our events goes towards the development of the new museum.

We know the cost of this ticket is more than the advertised price, however using this fantastic booking website comes at a cost. We are passing on the handling fee so that you have the choice to book in advance and avoid disappointment on the day.

The talk begins at 6pm and doors will open at 5.45pm.
