The FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival

The 2014 FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival from Saturday 22nd March to Sunday 30th March offers a wonderful range of talks, discussions, debates, readings, Literary Lunches and Dinners in the exceptional and beautiful surroundings of Christ Church and Corpus Christi College - with many major events staged in The Sheldonian Theatre, The Bodleian Library and other prestigious venues.

The Festival reflects the great literary traditions of The University of Oxford, and its historic Colleges, as well as the contemporary reputation of its Departments and Institutes in every field of scholarship, research and enquiry. Novelists, biographers, historians, poets, critics, politicians, soldiers, public servants, scientists, and medics will be joined by artists, philosophers, theologians, architects, engineers, botanists, environmentalists and children's writers.

The Oxford Literary Festival is widely acclaimed for its stimulating and provocative programme and the quality and fearlessness of its debates.

But above all the unique feature of The Oxford Literary Festival is the warmth of the welcome for all who attend, and the opportunity for the general public to meet and mix with authors, writers and public figures, from breakfast in hallowed halls to nightcaps in bars and pubs and hotels throughout the city.

Further details and a full programme of events can be found on the Oxford Literary Festival website.

Corpus Christi College

Corpus Christi will be the base for the seventh Fiction Creative Writing Course - a five-day college-based residential course offering an opportunity for aspiring fiction-writers to hone their skills in the company of eminent authors and other representatives of the literary world.

Many events throughout the week will be staged in our architecturally acclaimed MBJ Al Jaber Building; they include lectures and discussions with fascinating speakers on a wide range of topics and on 24th March Jancis Robinson will speak in our Hall about her life and work, followed by a wine tasting focused on changes in contemporary wine production.
