There was an old adage that things move slowly in Oxford, but this completely changed when William Morris relocated his factory to the eastern suburbs of the city in 1912. His business became the biggest producer of cars in the country in the interwar period, which had a massive impact on the local area. This talk by Simon Wenham will explore the ways in which Oxford was transformed, in the aftermath of becoming the fastest growing city in the country.

Doors open at 7.15 p.m. and the talk starts at 7.30 p.m. Free to members, visitors £3. Refreshments follow the talk.
