Clark Lecture 2017 – Alice Oswald – Falling Awake: a Lecture-Reading


The Winstanley Lecture Hall is in the Blue Boar Court which can be accessed from Whewell’s Court on Trinity Street opposite the Great Gate.

If unsure, inquire at the Porters’ Lodge in the Great Gate.


Alice Oswald (born 1966) is a British poet from Reading, Berkshire who won the T. S. Eliot Prize in 2002.


The Winstanley Lecture Theatre is a fully-equipped audio-visual theatre, with seating for up to 150 people.


To reach it, turn into Whewell's Court from Trinity Street. Turn right immediately after the first arch and climb the stone stairs. At the top of the stairs, follow the path round the ziggurat-like Wolfson building, leaving it to your left. Then turn right into Blue Boar Court. The Winstanley Lecture Theatre is on the east side of the Court.
