In-person Pub Quiz
Introduced in 2012 as an opening night icebreaker, Maggie and Mike Percival’s Oxonmoot Pub Quiz has become something of an institution.
This in-person version of the quiz will test a wide range of Tolkien knowledge, but the emphasis is on fun! We will help everyone to find a team to join - an ideal opportunity for everyone to meet up on the first evening of Oxonmoot.

Hobbit Hike
Ever thought that a bit of fresh air and exercise would be a good thing at Oxonmoot?

Join Maggie on a gentle hike (approximately 2 miles each way) across the University Parks and along the banks of the Cherwell. A short delay may happen at The Victoria Arms, though Maggie wants to be back for Just a Minute, so hopefully not too long a one!

Please wear sensible shoes. Note that in the event of inclement weather this may be cancelled or re-arranged at short notice.
