Where?

9 - 13 George Street
Oxford
OX1 2AU

We use the upstairs function room.

To find it, go up the spiral staircase - then look for the door immediately opposite you. Go through, up another flight of stairs and you will find us. There is a bar up here and it will be open, so no need to spill your pint on the spiral stairs. If you want to eat in the function room then you have to order your food downstairs and then carry it up yourself.

Step-free access is available.

What's the talk about?

Greek Myth provides the material for tragedy, epic and comedy in the ancient world. In turn, Greek tragedy has shaped drama and fiction ever since - from opera to soap opera, and from murder mysteries to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Our high culture and pop culture owe a great deal to Homer, Euripides and the rest. Come and find out how soap writers pilfer their stories from Aeschylus, and how Greek heroes have shaped our fictional world.

Think Week is an annual week of high profile free public events organised by local non-theistic societies in Oxford, running in late February. Our events cover philosophy, poltics, science and public performance. Find out more at www.thinkweek.co.uk.
