Spotlight Talk: The Boat Race Letter – CANCELLED

24th March 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Boat Race Letter

Due to the temporary closure of the Museum to visitors, this event will not be going ahead. 

Join our Curator to find out about the 1829 Boat Race letter, written by Charles Wordsworth of Oxford University to Charles Merivale of Cambridge University. The letter marks the foundation of the Oxford Cambridge Boat Race, recognised globally as one of the fiercest rivalries in sport. This exciting new acquisition is one of the most important letter correspondences in the history of rowing and was almost lost to history!

Free with admission
