The Inklings with Michael J. Christensen

Friday 12th to Sunday 14th August, 2022


The Oxford Inklings were an informal group of literary friends that met on Tuesday mornings at The Eagle and Child pub in Oxford (aka “The Bird and Baby”) for spirited conversation and on Thursday evenings in C. S. Lewis’s rooms in Magdalen College to read aloud poems and extracts from books they were writing.

The fellowship included Jack Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and his son Christopher, Charles Williams, and Owen Barfield amongst others. They met regularly through the 1930s and 1940s and left a literary legacy of romantic theology.

Join author and academic Michael J. Christensen for an exploration of the Inklings.
Places start at £330 for one person in a single room and £220 for non-residential attendance. Discounts are available for clergy/students.
