Mansfield College Public Talks

Mansfield College Auditorium

Mansfield College hosts a lively and engaging series of free Public Talks by leading figures from a variety of fields, convened by our Principal Helen Mountfield KC, every Friday from 5.30pm during Oxford University term time.

Mansfield Public Talks are open to anyone interested in ideas and debate, and are completely free of charge.

Recordings of past talks can be found on Mansfield’s YouTube channel.

To be kept informed about events, please email and ask to be added to our Public Talks mailing list.

These events are always free to attend, but if you would like to support us with the costs of hosting and publicising them, we are very grateful for voluntary donations.
