Olivia Newton-John and The Secret Barrister are just two of the celebrities and notable figures coming to Oxford in November.
The famous faces will visit the city as speakers at the Oxford Union – an exclusive debating club for students at the university.
Brian Cox, not to be confused with the scientist of the same name, is a multi-award winning Scottish actor, director and producer and star of HBO’s Succession. He rose to fame for his role in Braveheart and has been involved with both the National Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company.
However, the event involving The Secret Barrister will be delivered using a combination of voice actors and pre-submitted questions, in order to protect the Secret Barrister’s secret identity.
