University Open Days - Friday 19 September

If you are in Oxford for the University Open Days on Friday 19 September, call in and have a look at the Union!  You can see the Debating Chamber where so many eminent politicians developed their skills, and wonder at the amazing Pre-Raphaelite paintings in the Old Library.  Join the guided tour at 11.30 a.m..  No need to pre-book - just turn up. 

Or if 11.30 a.m. isn't convenient, just drop in any time between 10.30 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. and say hello.  We'd love to see you.  

Have a great day!
