A Night of Local Tudor Accidents

Friday, November 10, 2017 - 7:00pm
The Old Museum, Museum of Oxford, St Aldate's, Oxford OX1 1BX

 

Join Prof Steven Gunn (History, Oxford University) as he takes us on a fascinating journey through some of the Hidden Histories of Oxford and Oxfordshire with local Tudor Accidents! Heard about the bear attack in north Oxford? The building supplies delivery accident at Christ Church? Or the bowls on ice incident on the Cherwell? What about the throwing the sledgehammer competition that went wrong in Ardington, or the Marsh Baldon maypole mishap?

Interesting and comical, the evening will also involve object handling, the historical 'How did they die?' game and barge bar (cash only).
