Ashmolean Museum

Conference Reception / Conference Banquet

The Ashmolean Museum is the world’s first university museum, and still welcomes the public — free of charge — 340 years after its foundation.  Amongst its notable collections are the Messiah Stradivarius, the archive of Camille Pissarro, Arab ceremonial dress owned by Lawrence of Arabia, an extensive collection of Egyptian antiquities, the ceremonial cloak of Chief Powhatan, the lantern carried by Guy Fawkes in 1605, the Minoan collection of Arthur Evans (the biggest outside Crete), and local items of immense historical value (Anglo-Saxon swords, Roman artefacts, the Alfred Jewel, etc).

Attendees in both FLoC conference blocks will be able to enjoy this space, at the Conference Reception 9 July and the Conference Banquet 16 July.  Drinks available from 7pm, for a 7:30 start.

You can book your banquet place when you register for FLoC — guests welcome.  Family-friendly (children allowed) — email for details.  See also the family friendly page of our website.

Dress: smart casual.
