Sheldonian hosts the Vice-Chancellor’s Oration

Successful and safe events at the Sheldonian Theatre

The Sheldonian Theatre, part of the OUEV portfolio of venues, reopened its doors in October and hosted a number of University events throughout the month.  The team worked exceptionally hard to ensure the venue was as safe as possible putting into place all the measures as detailed in their risk assessment, Six Step Commitment to Safe Events, and meeting AIM Secure and Good to Go standards.

Each event was carefully planned with the aim of creating a great atmosphere and ensuring everyone’s safety and enjoyment.  Customers were very understanding of the new measures and it was wonderful to see the Sheldonian filled from top to floor (at a distance!) and have the reassurance that the safety measures put in place are doing their job.

The OUEV team were very pleased to receive the following feedback; “The team are so helpful and proactive. Nothing is too much trouble. They are organised, knowledgeable, offer a five star service and really care that the events go well.”

Earlier in the summer, OUEV also launched a ‘six step commitment to safe events’ - Click here to see their dedicated page and up to date information about their venues.

The Sheldonian Theatre is part of the Oxford University Event Venues portfolio which also includes the Examination Schools, St Luke’s Chapel, Osler House and Language Centre.
