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.

Part of the Oxford Chamber Music Festival
Concert in support of Greta Thunberg and XR
Yggdrasil is the tree of life, an eternally green ash tree whose branches connect the nine worlds of Norse mythology, and stretch up into the heavens. Our closing concert is a celebration – of humanity's deep connections to our fragile and delicate ecosystem, so perfectly summed up in the legend of Yggdrasil, and so inspirationally defended by a global movement growing out of Sweden, and connecting people across continents.
