The North Wall Arts Centre
Tel: 01865 319450
The North Wall in South Parade is a purpose-built arts centre which opened in 2007. Created from a former Victorian swimming pool, the centre has won several national awards for its innovative design and comprises a 200-seat theatre, an art gallery, and two studio spaces. The North Wall aims to fill a gap by offering an alternative to the mainstream, introducing Oxford audiences to a vibrant programme of award-winning theatre, dance & opera: shows that require intimacy as well as shows that have a large-scale ambition but fit into the theatre's flexible space. Previous performers include Shared Experience, Out of Joint & 1927.
As well as welcoming top comedians such as Sarah Millican & Julian Clary, the theatre also hosts So Comedy Live, a monthly comedy club that showcases Britain’s brightest up-and-coming stand-up stars. The progamme also includes shows for families, contemporary and classical music, cabaret, and new exhibitions in the modern, light-filled gallery every three weeks.
