‘Real Oxford’

Tuesday 11 October, 8pm
Magdalen College Auditorium

Pat McGuinessPoet, novelist and academic Patrick McGuinness has published a new book about an old city, a deeply personal exploration of the Oxford of breweries and factories, car plants, stations and wharves. He delves into the city’s unexpectedly radical politics, high-rise Oxford as well as High Table Oxford. There’s European Oxford, Windrush Oxford, Cavalier and Roundhead Oxford and Oxford’s own population – the artisans, tradespeople and urban working-class whose city-centre suburbs were demolished.
