Bod vt-2

The Virtual Show Around

Explore the Bodleian Libraries from the comfort of your own home

Since they understand that everyone is taking precautions and preferring to stay at home, the events team at the Bodleian Libraries is getting creative and offering one-to-one ‘virtual’ show rounds of their wonderful venues.

These personal show rounds really are a great way to decide if the Bodleian is the perfect venue for your wedding or event, and presents the perfect opportunity for you and the events team to get to know each other, while you relax with a cup of tea from the comfort of your sofa.

20-30 mins is all you will need and you’re welcome to invite your nearest and dearest to join too, so no need for anyone to travel!

At the Bodleian they use either Zoom or Microsoft Teams to host their show rounds and you can expect to meet with two members of the team.

You will be shown a PowerPoint presentation tailored to your needs and this is sent to you afterwards for your reference. The presentation will explain each room in detail and the ‘journey’ of your event at the Bodleian, such as how you will move between each room.

The PowerPoint will also outline the booking process (including COVID-19 protocols if booking in 2020) as well as introducing you to the suppliers (caterers, lighting, florists etc.) that work closely with the Bodleian to make your event special and memorable. There will also be plenty of time to ask any questions you may have.

Please do not hesitate to contact weddings@bodleian.ox.ac.uk or events@bodleian.ox.ac.uk to book your virtual show round.
