St. Hilda’s Crime Fiction Weekend 2024

St. Hilda's College, University of Oxford

A Dance to the Music of Crime: the artful path to murder

A crime fiction weekend like no other – from its beginnings, St Hilda’s Crime Fiction Weekend has drawn readers from all over the world to Oxford to hear their favourite authors explore the genre and the writers who have inspired them. Since 2020, we have offered this unique conference online, by popular demand from all over the world.

From the classic adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Lord Peter Wimsey to the killer tunes of the Fun Lovin’ Crime Writers, music and performance have played a central role in some of our best-loved stories. Join us as the curtain rises on our 31st St Hilda’s Crime Fiction Weekend with a host of award-winning authors who will put the poise into poison, explore the harm in harmony, and unfailingly strike the right note.

Our Guest of Honour is Elly Griffiths who will be joined by a stellar list of speakers.
