The Tingewick Society has played an important part in the life of many medical students from the University of Oxford.

The Tingewick Pantomime is exclusively acted, written, designed, and produced by medical students from the University of Oxford. Starting in 1938, the pantomime has grown into the biggest event in the Oxford hospitals' calendar. Outrageous, witty and perceptive, the pantomime is a memorable part of the Oxford medical student experience. Each year, 'Tingewick' is witnessed by over 1,400 doctors, nurses, students and members of the public, and whilst tickets are free, audience donations, collected after each performance typically raise over £20,000 for that year's chosen charities. Read the list of Tingewick performance titles from 1940 to 2019.
