    Join us for an engaging talk by local historian Mark Davies about Oxford Castle. Hear about Elizabeth Boswell, who escaped the castle not once but twice and the enigmatic Peter le Maitre. Mark asks if he could have been the French revolutionary Marat? Mark’s work covers Anne Green, who survived her hanging to become an instant celebrity, amongst others. Expect stories of imprisonment, transportation, escape, and execution as Mark sheds new light on the enthralling story of this major Oxford landmark.

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

    We know the cost of the ticket through Eventbrite 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. This event will be in the Court Room.

    Kiss Me, Kate is a musical written by Samuel and Bella Spewack with music and lyrics by Cole Porter. The story involves the production of a musical version of William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew and the conflict on and off-stage between Fred Graham, the show's director, producer, and star, and his leading lady, his ex-wife Lilli Vanessi. A secondary romance concerns Lois Lane, the actress playing Bianca, and her gambler boyfriend, Bill, who runs afoul of some gangsters. Includes show-stopping songs such as Always True To You In My Fashion, So In Love and Too Darn Hot.
