Collection Title
Oxford Ladies' Musical Society (1955-68)
Unique Identifier
MS.Top.Oxon.d.778
Description
A complete set of handbill prospectuses for the concerts given by the Oxford Ladies' Musical Society between October 1955 and June 1968, bound chronologically in a single volume, with individual handbills for the performances given on 12 February 1956 and 26 May 1968.

Handbill prospectuses were published each term and contain programmes for four concerts. The sequential numbering of the performances is provided below with the various inconsistencies/repetitions retained.

Unless otherwise stated below, all concerts were given at 'Gunfield', 19 Norham Gardens, Oxford. All documents include some information regarding ticket arrangements and the committee for the concerts.

The handbill for nos. 692-5 is labelled (in hand) as being for Trinity Term 1955: the numbering of these concerts would suggest that it in fact relates to Trinity Term 1956.

In addition to the prospectuses and handbills, documentation for each concert includes a large number of press cuttings/reviews.
