The Arts Society Oxford – VISITS PROGRAMME 2020 – 2021

During the course of this year, virtual tours took the place of actual tours because of the pandemic and associated restrictions.

It was possible during a period of relaxation in September/October 2020 to arrange a series of two walking tours, one by Lizzy Rowe of… and one by Alastair Lack of the area round St Thomas. These were fully booked, though sadly had to be curtailed due to tighter restrictions, and a planned visit to the Wood Engravers Centenary Exhibition at the North Wall Gallery in early November had to be cancelled.
