Oxford Castaways and The Big Bang Restaurant

See some familiar faces. I was honoured to get Sir Roger Bannister’s signature on his memoir ‘Twin Tracks’.There are some wonderful details in it.  Before his voice broke, aged 14 , he played the role of Kate in ‘ The Taming of the Shrew’!  This castaway was so energetic and  hard working and  he is still keen to experience new things. He is a true inspiration. The same goes for his fellow castaway Lady Moyra Bannister and their daughter Charlotte who was one of the panelists in the debate.

Is Oxford Oxtopia?

My castaways  are not alone of Oxtopia. All 90 will need to build a new society. As well as the 4 panelists at the Big Bang, other castaways will join the debate at  other venues during 2014.

Castaways will discuss what aspects of Oxford life  they would  like to re- create on the island and what  they want to leave behind. You can join in the debate.

Nov  15 @ Kennington 6.30 for 7pm , the event  includes a generous and  delicious two course meal  for £14. ( Bring a bottle) Proceeds to support the community library. You can come alone and feel very welcome or book a table for a group of six or seven.   You can book via this web site.

What would I take to Oxtopia ?Green Oxford as visualised  by Weimin He  and I would want to recreate the beauty of Oxford and leave behind the A34.  I would take the diversity and leave the pockets of exclusivity.
