ماذا ستفعل

Tolkien once described the Inklings club as
“An undetermined and unelected circle of friends who gather around C S lewis, our habit was to read aloud compositions of various kinds ....and lengths !"
One cannot underestimate how the loud encouragement this circle of friends gave one another helped produce some of the most important and popular books of the 20th century.
Not only Fantasy classics such as The Chronicles Of Narnia and The Lord Of The Rings but also important religious works such as Lewis’s “Mere Christianity” a book which has sold over two hundred million copies.
At a relaxed pace, we will explore many sites and stories associated with this eclectic group, concentrating not only on C.S. Lewis and J.R.R Tolkien but also some of the other Inklings such as Owen Barfield and a man who was a great influence on Lewis, Charles Williams.
Whilst taking in Oxford's stunning architecture we shall wander the grounds of a beautiful medieval College associated with the Inklings and visit The University Church of Saint Marys {Where Lewis gave talks} and The Divinity School {The oldest surviving building for University use including lectures and oral exams} - any entrance fees are included in the price
We shall also walk by many of their regular haunts such as The Eagle And Child pub & Eastgate Hotel.
I shall also regale great stories of which I have collected over many years

Hello, my name is Tom. I am an Oxford-based author and events organizer. I am currently working on a second edition of "Sweete Wittie Soules", a book which explores Shakespeare's connections to Oxford, I am also in the final stages of writing a book on the paranormal side of Oxford and in the first phases of a project concerning Thomas Hardy's connections to Oxford.
I have lived in Oxford all my life and have been a tour guide for over a decade, in that time I have garnered a wealth of local knowledge.
I love taking visitors around this beautiful city of which I am very proud to call my home
