National Lottery support for East Oxford’s First World War ‘Hidden Heritage’

The College announced on 26th June that it has received a £10,000 National Lottery grant, awarded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), to undertake a project about the First World War heritage of the former monastic site on which it is based.

Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, the project – ‘Wartime at an Oxfordshire Monastery’ – will focus on key figures within the local community, and the role that they played in wartime Oxford.

Marking the Centenary of the First World War, it will involve local schoolchildren and the wider community around the College’s East Oxford site in exploring and uncovering the rich history associated with the former monastery.

SJE Arts, the College’s concert and arts venue based in the College church on the Iffley Road, will form the hub for the project, hosting an Open Day on Sunday 10th September (2– 5pm) to encourage people to share photographs, newspaper clippings, documents, letters and photos of keepsakes, as well as family tales passed down to help them build a clear picture of what life was really like. Dr Serenhedd's introduction to the history of the site is here, and Professor Gary Sheffield's overview of the forgotten elements of WWI is available here, as mp3 streams. A brief BBC Radio piece, broadcast in September 2017 by Marcus Liddell is available here.

With help from professionals, the information gathered will be digitally recorded and an online interactive archive will be created where everyone can access and contribute information. The National Lottery funded project will also result in a self-guided tour of a series of paintings in SJE Arts, which were commissioned to commemorate the end of the First World War.
