Oxford Conversations Brunches

We are organising six relaxed brunches in May and June with a guest speaker. Speakers are Oxonians living locally who are leading some very interesting projects! So, how about joining us for a tasty brunch (10am - 12pm) while having a stimulating conversation at the lido?Brunch

The Lido restaurant was featured recently on BBC2 as one of Bristol's best places to eat! Spaces are limited as we can only reserve a table for six to eight people. We would love to host you, so please let us know you are coming. Better still, please think about volunteering as a guest speaker as we hope to host another brunch series in the autumn.
