    An illustrated talk by local historian Liz Woolley about the history of brewing in Oxford.Since medieval times, brewing was big business in Oxford. There were dozens of commercial breweries, as well as brewhouses at the colleges, castle prison and, later, at the Radcliffe Infirmary. In the 18th century several great brewing families emerged – the Tawneys, the Halls, the Treachers, and the Morrells.

    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.

    Please arrive at the Town Hall 10 minutes prior to the beginning of the talk. This talk is part of our 'Pubs and Breweries' events all to help raise funds for the new Museum of Oxford. You can also help by supporting our Crowd Funding campaign - more information can be found on our website.
