Sheldonian Theatre

Submitted by oxalumni on Tue, 2014-12-16 11:09

The Sheldonian Theatre was erected in 1664-8 to a design by Sir Christopher Wren (1632-1723) from funds donated by Gilbert Sheldon (1598-1677) – a former Chancellor of the Univeristy of Oxford.

Its purpose was to provide an appropriate secular venue for the principal meetings and public ceremonies of the University, and this remains its purpose today. The Sheldonian was described by the European Commission as 'one of the architectural jewels of Oxford'.

Offer for alumni: Oxford Alumni Card-holders benefit from free entry to the Sheldonian Theatre, while their guests receive concessionary rates (currently £2.50).
