Fri 11 - Sat 12 Oct, University Church of St Mary the Virgin
Dating from the 11th century, the church is historically the most important building in Oxford. Among other things, it is where the Protestant Archbishops Cranmer, Ridley and Latimer were tried for heresy in 1555 and condemned to be burned at the stake. It was also used for university ceremonies and examinations before the building of the Examination Schools and the Sheldonian Theatre.
