'A Jewel in the Crown - Oxford's Covered Market'

As we celebrate the restoration of the former Lindsey's Butchers in the Covered Market, local author and former head of Oxfordshire Studies, Dr Malcolm Graham, will examine the creation of the Covered Market in the 1770s by a joint City and University committee, thus clearing the streets of market stalls as part of a wider programme to modernise and transform the city.  Malcolm  will also cover the subsequent development and expansion of the market and its changing character over the years up to the present day.
