Oxford At Night - The Sheldonian Theatre

This month's piece of Oxford at night is the Sheldonian Theatre, taken from Catte Street.

The Sheldonian Theatre, was built from 1664 to 1668 after a design by Christopher Wren for the University of Oxford. The building is named after Gilbert Sheldon, chancellor of the university at the time and the project's main financial backer. It is used for music concerts, lectures and university ceremonies, but not for drama.
