About the Event

Registering for this event is appreciated.

A mysterious leafy mask - or a face with plants streaming from the mouth  - the Green Man is an age-old presence in architecture and crafts. He turns up in some of the earliest parish churches and the cloisters of Gothic cathedrals; in 18th-century garden ornaments and Victorian door surrounds. Is he a pagan symbol? Tim Healey explores the enigma of this extraordinary motif with a wealth of colourful images showing examples from Oxfordshire.

Tim Healey is a freelance writer and broadcaster. A frequent contributor to the Oxford Times colour magazine Limited Edition, he has also presented many programmes on BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4, chiefly on heritage themes and the popular music of the past.
