Because of late cancellations, there are now two spaces available for the walking tour and lectures in Oxford on 13 September.
Details are below. I f you would like to join, please get in touch with me as soon as possible at email@example.com, or tel. 0207 736 4842.
In the morning there will be a walking tour of Oxford by professional guide Rob Walters on the theme of ‘Distinguished South Asians in Oxford’. This will be followed by lunch in the roof top restaurant of the Ashmolean Museum. Afterwards, Professor Mallica Kumbera Landrus, Keeper of Eastern Art, will give a lecture on the museum’s Indian collections, referring among other things to the British as collectors and patrons. Following this will be a guided tour of the Indian galleries. The details are below.

The cost of the walking tour, lecture and gallery tour is £35 per person, which includes a £5 donation to BACSA. Lunch will be paid for individually at the time, depending on what you eat and drink. As we will be quite a large group, the menu will be circulated in advance, so that I can let the restaurant know our order.
