Oxford Literary Festival is continuing business as normal. Most of our schedule has been unaffected by recent events. We are ready to welcome visitors and make your experience as enjoyable as we can.
The festival is a self-funding charity, mainly supported by volunteers. We are following official information, advice and guidance. Please understand that we might need to take further precautions and change the schedule or access to events if necessary. We will work with the authorities to ensure that we play our part in ensuring public health and minimising disruption. As developments can be fast-moving, we kindly ask in advance for your patience and flexibility.
Unless there is reason for updating more frequently, this notice will be updated on the website by 1pm each Friday. It is not a substitute for official information on coronavirus and the UK’s response to it.
