Our 2021 Weekend: For a second year we are taking this celebration of crime entirely live and online. With a simple link you will be able to join us, live, from wherever you are.

The 28th St Hilda's College Crime Fiction Weekend will celebrate that fictional city of dreaming spires and nightmarish crimes. Ours is a weekend with a difference. Launched in 1994, it offers crime fiction fans from all over the world the unique experience of hearing their favourite authors exploring the genre, their own work, and the writers who inspired them.

Our theme: Oxford: the capital of crime fiction. Down these mean, cobbled streets have walked far more than just Morse. Join us on a journey through the Oxford of Charles I, Peter Wimsey, Endeavour, and even Shakespeare himself: a spired city of lofty ideals and grave motives, of High Tables and low intentions.
