Oxford Open Doors 2017

Humanities Building

TORCH is delighted to be opening its doors to the public as part of the "Oxford Open Doors" weekend. The Radcliffe Humanities building has a fascinating history and has many hidden treasures. From 1770 to 2007 it was a hospital - the Radcliffe Infirmary - and was the birth place of many locals in Oxfordshire. Many people will also remember having operations in the building and it is where penicillin was first used in 1941.

The refurbishment has retained many original features. The building has also changed dramatically, as rooms that were once surgical theatres are now state of the art seminar rooms.

We look forward to welcoming you to explore the building, as well as hearing your stories about the building.
