Mon 4 Feb: Peter Apian's Typography and Initials

Daryl Green, the Magdalen College librarian, will talk about Peter Apian's Typography & Initials.

This talk, organised by the Oxford Guild of Printers, will be held in the 'Green Room' in Charlbury Memorial Hall at 8pm. All welcome.

Peter Apian (1495-1552), also known as Petrus Apianus, was a mathematician, astronomer and printer. His Astronomicum Cæsareum, so called because of its dedication to his patron Emperor Charles V, uses a series of wonderful paper models (or volvelles) of the Ptolemaic system, which could be rotated to predict a planet's celestial latitude and longitude at any time and date. This image from Magdalen's copy, shows how in Ptolemy's model most planets moved around a small sphere (the epicycle) that in turn moved around a larger sphere (the deferent). This is similar to how we now see the Moon as orbiting the Earth and also following the Earth's larger orbit around the Sun.

Sun 10 Feb: "Some Like It Hot" - ChOC Classic Cinema

Cert. 12 / 116mins

Last February, the first entry in our new ChOC Classic Cinema strand, Brief Encounter, attracted a large and very attentive audience, who braved a chilly winter's evening to reappraise one of the best British films ever made.


2019's ChOC Classic hails from the other side of the Atlantic. Made in 1959 by the legendary Billy Wilder, Some Like It Hot stars Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis as two down-at-heel Chicagoan jazz musicians who inadvertently witness the St Valentine's Day Massacre. They succeed in escaping the clutches of a vicious mob run by the sinister 'Spats' Colombo (George Raft) by securing jobs with a touring band of female musicians in the new guises of 'Josephine' and 'Daphne'. On a train to Miami, they make the acquaintance of the bewitching 'Sugar' Kane (Marilyn Monroe) and Josephine (Curtis) quickly falls in love with her, later pursuing her in Florida disguised as an oil magnate. Daphne catches the eye of wealthy playboy Osgood Fielding the Third (Joe E. Brown) and so, for a while, our heroes' major dilemma involves trying to extricate themselves from the romances that their enforced cross-dressing have embroiled them in. But when Colombo's mobsters arrive on the scene, Josephine and Daphne have to face up to the rather more pressing task of saving their own necks.

A genuine cinematic classic, Some Like It Hot is an hilarious comedy drama illuminated by superb performances from Lemmon, Curtis and Monroe. This is a film guaranteed to warm the cockles in the depths of winter so please join us to enjoy ChOC Classic Cinema Part 2.

Memorial Hall, Charlbury at 7pm.
(doors & licensed bar from 6.15pm)

Admission: Adults £5 / U15s £3

Alastair Ross (harpsichord)

In the Memorial Hall at 3pm, followed by free tea and cake.

A tribute concert in memory of Maurice Cochrane and Roger Pensom

Alastair Ross was a chorister at Christ Church, and an organ scholar at New College, Oxford, where he gained a First in Music. He has worked as a freelance harpsichordist and organist for thirty five years. He is principal keyboard player of the Academy of Ancient Music and The Sixteen, with whom he played a Handel Organ Concerto in the 2009 BBC Proms. He also plays with Canzona, with whose director, Theresa Caudle, he teaches every year on courses of baroque chamber music at Benslow and Jackdaws.

"In my twenties, I wanted to be an organist. I was organ scholar at New College, Oxford; studied in America; and had church jobs at High Wycombe Parish Church and St Margaret's, Westminster. I passionately love that repertoire, but gave it up when I realised that I'd rather drag my young children into the Chiltern Hills than into church on Sunday mornings."

Thu 21 Feb: “A rose, is a rose, is a rose”. Nonsense!

Let's revive an interest in our roses.
Most of us have at least one rose somewhere in our garden even if we can't remember where it is.

Rose expert, Andrew Hornung, will talk about how garden roses have changed over the years.

He will look at the breakthroughs in the history of rose breeding and the influence of technology and commerce on it. He will focus on the way social institutions influence rose breeding from state aid to plant patents, and how rose growers shape the market and shift production to countries where labour is cheap and horticulture unregulated. He will celebrate the variety and enchantment of roses but ask what factors other than the beauty of the bloom determine breeders' choices.
The huge range of rose varieties allows us to choose the right rose for the right spot. How do we do that?

Andrew lives in Church Enstone and has written widely, chiefly on horticulture in Italy where he lived for many years. He is the author of the only history of Italian rose breeding and is interested primarily in the social history of horticulture.

Charlbury Memorial Hall
Doors 7.30, talk starts at 8pm.
Free to members, visitors welcome £3. Light refreshments included.

Tue 16 Apr: A Charlbury Festival Fundraising Event

Backing into the Limelight: The Enigma of Lawrence of Arabia

Friends Meeting House 7.30
£5 on the door

This talk is in advance of a performance of Shadow of the Desert, a radio play by David Lines which, after a very successful run in Stonesfield last year, is being staged on 15 June as part of the Charlbury Art Festival.

The speakers are David Lines and Becki Sherlaw-Johnson (the play's director).

Many of us know something about T.E. Lawrence, usually from seeing David Lean's film Lawrence of Arabia. Perhaps you have managed to read Lawrence's famous book Seven Pillars of Wisdom, widely regarded as a definitive work when attempting to understand the Middle East, but who was this enigmatic hero and icon?

As we researched and prepared the script, we found a brilliant Oxford scholar, archaeologist, tactician and adventurer alongside a shy, very private man who lived the life of an ascetic. The popular image of Lawrence revolves round two intense years of fighting in the desert, behind that lies a man who was, and largely remains, an enigma despite the many attempts that have been made to understand who and what he was.

This talk aims to shed some light on both the man and the influences and politics that inspired him.
