With Oxfordshire poets

The Ashmolean welcomes back old friends, and new ones as well to our series of poetry tours in 2023. Poets from Oxford and surrounding areas will explore and celebrate the Museum’s pieces, renowned or recherche, intriguing or glorious. Poems will be recited next to the objects and artworks that inspired the poets. Poets will reflect on the attributes of power and King Charles I, II and III, exploring the Money gallery and the Ashmolean Story gallery among others. 

Look out for details of more Saturday poetry tours in July 2023.
