We run a year-round programme of Oxford-themed talks, walks and visits aimed to encourage an awareness and understanding of our city. The talks (free and open to all) are given by leading speakers in interesting locations across the city. Topics can include Oxford’s history, buildings, arts and science, and current development projects.
The extensive programme of visits and walks (members only and usually for a small charge) is led by local experts and held both in and out of Oxford.
New this year, and celebrating the 50th anniversary of Oxford Civic Society, we are presenting three OCS@50 Debates. These will cover:
- The need for housing versus the protection of the Green Belt,
- Cutting pollution in Oxford; the Zero Emission Zone, and
- The Expressway.
Admission to the debates is open to all (members and non-members) by paid ticket only. Look under the ‘OCS@50 Debates’ tab for full information on these as they take shape. Booking for the Green Belt debate is now open; tickets for this event are £7 per head. Follow the link on the event page to buy tickets (maximum two per person).
