The annual Encaenia celebrations, due to take place on Wednesday, 24 June, were cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Those who were due to receive honorary degrees in 2020 (the full list is printed in Gazette No 5266, 13 February 2020, page 248) will instead be honoured in June 2021.

Encaenia also commemorates the benefactors of the University through the Creweian Oration. The full text of this year’s Oration – although not delivered live in the Sheldonian – is available to read in the Encaenia 2020 Gazette supplement.
