Image result for tedX oxfordTEDxOxford is an annual independently organised TED event. The day-conference brings together individuals who will hear from a collection of the world’s most interesting and remarkable minds. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At our TEDxOxford event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

This ancient seat of learning holds many dark secrets. Oxford’s streets have played host to agony and horror, torment and terror.  Morbid phantoms of the past stalk shadowy recesses in colleges, condemned to rehearse their lamentable ordeals for all time. The ‘Dreaming Spires’ is a place of nightmares.

The Ghost Walk is an unsettling journey through the bleakest moments in University history…

Please note that you may need to change trains in London!

Tickets are limited. Book here

Set in a world very like our own, this Romeo and Juliet is about a generation of young people born into violence and ripped apart by the bitter divisions of their parents. The most famous story of love at first sight explodes with intense passion and an irresistible desire for change, but leads all too quickly to heartbreaking consequences.

Tickets are very limited!

Trip to London, 22nd to 24th October, £285. BOOKING CLOSED

This trip includes train or coach tickets, breakfast and dinner, London travel card, hostel accommodation, walking tour, good seats at a top musical*, one special event*.

For many exchange students this is not the first time in London. You may have been before with your parents or on a school trip. No wonder…London is one of the top tourist destinations in the world.  Many have already seen the usual attractions. You are no longer just a tourist, you will be living here and we can encourage you to see it that way. Rather than taking you places you may have been before and will certainly have an opportunity to visit another time, we want you to leave our capital city  feeling like you know your way around well enough to come back, either during the year or with your parents at the end. During the day, we will focus on helping you learn how to use the transport system and also get a feeling for how different areas of London are connected. Our second priority during the time here is to show you a couple of things you couldn’t see alone. We will be spending time with you in the evening and letting you get a feeling for London at night. Of course, we will also be sharing our knowledge of the city and making sure you know about the sights and attractions.

We are currently holding tickets for the musical ‘Wicked’ and the special event ‘Beauty and the Feast’.
