ORGAN RECITALS

Each Wednesday at 13:10 during term time we host an informal lunchtime recital which ends before 14:00. Admission is free with retiring collection, and you’re welcome to come and go between pieces. For disabled access please speak to the Porters Lodge (01865 279120).

Join us on the following dates to enjoy the sparkling sound of one of Oxford’s finest organs, bathed in the glorious architecture and acoustic of the Baroque chapel.
