Wren 300 Exhibition

When: 15th and 16th April

Where: Trinity College, Oxford (map)

This event is free to attend.

An exhibition from the Trinity Archives will tell the story of Wren’s relationship with College President Ralph Bathurst, and his role in the restoration of Trinity’s fortunes through the impact of his magnificent buildings.

Visitors will be able to explore the evolution of Wren’s free-standing Garden Quad building as it exists today. Materials on display will include an original ‘unbuilt’ Wren design; a bantering 1665 letter from Wren grumbling about where his building was to stand, and some of the original workmen’s equipment discovered beneath the floor during the 2017 Chapel restoration.

Wren 300 is a multi-faceted celebration of the life and work of the renowned British architect, mathematician, astronomer and scientist Sir Christopher Wren, marking the tercentenary of his death in 2023.
