Event description

Description

This walking tour explores imaginary maps of Oxford found in literature and discusses the tensions they bring to its modern realities. Walk in the footsteps of JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis, Salman Rushdie and Helen Fielding, and discover Oxford as a setting, an inspiration and a site of contention.

Run by Uncomfortable Oxford, a student-led social enterprise that facilitates discourse on difficult legacies in our lived environment.

Access Comments: The tour is open to all capabilities but participants are advised that it involves 90 minutes of navigating the city's streets and will at times cover uneven pavement and cobblestones.

IF Oxford is operating a Pay What You Decide (PWYD) ticketing system. This works by enabling you to pre-book events without paying for a ticket beforehand. Afterwards, you have the opportunity to pay what you decide you want to, or can afford. If you prefer, you can make a donation to IF Oxford when you book. All funds raised go towards next year's Festival.
