Rewley House

We hold regular lectures and events.

Lectures are usually held at Rewley House in Oxford from 5.30 - 6.30pm but the autumn lecture season will be broadcast via Zoom.

The excursions take us further afield to interesting places and may include special tours and talks, however all events and excursions are currently cancelled.

Zoom Online Lectures

Our autumn lecture series will take place online on Zoom as we cannot meet in person at the moment.

Online lectures are open to all OAHS members.
