New College is Running free half hour recitals after evensong on Saturdays. Well worth it. I believe they start at 7:15. Get there at 7pm.

A delight. Interesting hall and buildings. Beautiful cloisters and garden. Long walk following the wall around the garden area. Not to be missed.

Just returned from a Bach concert in the lovely Chapel. Lovely venue and the acoustics were good. Even on a hot afternoon, it was quite comfortable.

We visited this college without knowing anything about it, just wandered in on a beautiful sunny evening. We walked through the grounds/gardens but didn’t go inside - they were beautiful & so peaceful.
