Each morning following breakfast we enjoy an informal lecture from Professor Shutt during which he covers one of Lewis’ major works and explores the relevance of what we’ll be seeing later in the day.  The lectures are held either in our hotel or on the privately chartered mini-coach which transports us to locations on our daily itinerary.  Afternoons are spent visiting sites relevant to Lewis and which help to reveal his life’s journey.

Plenty of free time is scheduled for participants to pursue their own interests.  This provides participants with time to enjoy their own sightseeing and entertainment wishes.  Fancy a bit of shopping?  There is an afternoon free in Belfast and a free afternoon in Oxford presents the possibility for a quick trip down to London. Both Belfast and Oxford provide numerous options for an evening out.  Your Scholarly Sojourns Tour Manager is always on hand to recommend restaurants and entertainment options.

Seminar Evenings
Two evenings during the week are reserved for special seminars designed to encourage group participation and discovery.  The locations for these seminar evenings are often stories in themselves – historic pubs that were frequented by Lewis and his peers.  We gather one evening at The Eagle and Child to discuss The Chronicles of Narnia.  Another evening brings us to The White Horse for a discussion of Mere Christianity.  On each occasion Professor Shutt leads us in a spirited discussion of the works.  All participants have the opportunity to contribute their thoughts and impressions.
