2021 St Hilda’s College Crime Fiction Weekend

18:00 to 13:00
Times to be confirmed
Whether in situ or online, the 28th St Hilda's College Crime Fiction Weekend will celebrate that fictional city of dreaming spires and nightmarish crimes: Oxford, the capital of crime fiction.

Ours is a weekend with a difference. Launched at St Hilda's in 1994, it offers crime fiction fans from all over the world the unique experience of hearing their favourite authors exploring the genre, their own work, and the writers who inspired them.

From McDermid and Herron to Wimsey and Morse, from the Dining Halls and Kebab vans to the Gaudy Nights and Moving Toyshops: details and speaker announcements for 2021 to follow soon...

For now, some comforting words of wisdom in these troubled times:
"How fleeting are all human passions compared with the massive continuity of ducks.”
 (Gaudy Night)
