2015 Oxford

The 2015 meeting took place at The Old Bank Hotel in Oxford, hosted by Jeremy Noble from 7 to 9 October.

Members and their guests were accommodated at the Old Bank Hotel in central Oxford, and were transported on the evening of 7 October to Swan Farm House at Marsh Gibbon, chez Noble, for supper and wine.

On the morning of 8 October, the accompanying persons travelled by coach to Bicester Village, rejoining their partners for lunch in the hotel. The first scientific session took place in the hotel.

After lunch on 8 October, members and their partners were taken on a guided tour of the Sheldonian Theatre, the Bodlean Library and the Radcliffe Camera. The day concluded with a private tour of the Ashmolean Museum, followed by a champagne reception and a splendid, black-tie, Club dinner in the museum concourse.

One popular item in the Ashmolean, sought out by many a urologist, was a postcard of Francesco Urbini's famous 1536 "Dickhead Plate" (pictured above right), constructed entirely from images of the human penis!

There is no current record of the scientific sessions on 9 October, but the accompanying persons were escorted on a walking tour of Oxford and its colleges, before meeting up with their partners for lunch in the hotel after the presentations.
