Ticket price

Oxford University produced a rich crop of poets in the 20th century – from First World War poets such as Robert Graves and Edmund Blunden, through the ‘pylon poets’ of the 1920s and 1930s (such as WH Auden and Louis MacNeice) to Philip Larkin, Keith Douglas and distinguished contemporary poets, not forgetting, of course, John Betjeman. Enjoy readings from their poetry and prose, from St John’s College to Merton. This walk lasts two hours and ends at Christ Church.

Alastair Lack worked for the BBC for 26 years, making programmes for radio and television.  His final postion was as head of English programmes at BBC World Service radio.
