Day & weekend


Over 150 day & weekends schools are offered per year. These one and two day classes on a single topic are designed to bring you the most up-to-date thinking on a wide range of subjects, and are taught by lecturers and speakers who are noted authorities in their field of research.

Day-long events usually take place on a Saturday, between 9.45am and 5pm. Weekend Events usually start on a Friday evening or Saturday and run until Sunday lunchtime. 

Many courses are offered in conjunction with national organisations such as the National Trust, the Society for Medieval Architecture or the Oxford Internet Institute. 

Food, drink and Accommodation

Tea and coffee are provded during breaks; you can book meals with most courses. 

Accommodation for weekend events can usually be booked on enrolment. Where this is not an option you can book bedrooms directly with our residential centre (subject to availability).
