Genre Crime St Hilda’s College Crime Fiction Weekend

St Hilda’s College Crime Fiction Weekend


A weekend with a difference in glorious Oxford. Founded 1994. Inspiring talks, superb meals, murder/mystery, readerly camaraderie.

The 2020 theme is ‘All Our Yesterdays’: historical crime fiction.
Find yourself unleashed upon the London of the Swinging Sixties, caught amid clashes of St Hildas Crime Fictionclasses and cultures as the Empire’s sun sets on Calcutta, pursuing India’s first female detective down the winding backstreets of 1950s Bombay, browsing the gin shops and brothels of Georgian London, or goggling at the vent acts, dancing girls and fortune tellers as Brighton hangs out the bunting for the Coronation of Elizabeth II – and all in pursuit of Murder.

After all, they say Time heals everything…
