Life is a circus:

Not sure what we do to help people change their labels? Life Is A Circus is a documentary following our 2017 Hidden Spire project from start to finish. A group of people - some with experience of homelessness - created a play from scratch. Find out what happened here.

Become a friend:

"I want to protect theatre and the arts; please, let me help in any way I can!" - words from a fantastic commenter in our audience survey. One of the best ways you can help us now is by signing up to become a Friend, and giving us a monthly amount of your choice.

Tell us what you think:


Like every venue, we're trying to work how and when we can re-open. To have your say in what would make you feel safe in a theatre again, and when you'd consider booking tickets, please take five minutes to fill out this survey with our partners Indigo Ltd.

Postcards from a pandemic:


After assuming this would be a niche project that not many people would be interested in, we received over 200 sign-ups! We'll be in touch soon about whether or not you're in our first wave. You can still sign up if you'd like to be considered for future iterations.

How to use stories to measure impact:

We've developed a new way to evaluate projects and move away from questionnaires and statistics: the Storytelling Evaluation Methodology. If you're interested in new approaches to evaluation, sign up for our free webinar on Wednesday 3 June. Click here.

Show love to the NHS:

We know him as musician Asher Dust. We also know him as the fantastic hat-sporting stalwart of our Front of House team. However you know him, buy his brilliant new track Show Love To The NHS for £2 to raise money for the John Radcliffe Hospital.

Our whole team is missing the building - Front of House Coordinator Thomas Radclyffe has made us miss it even more by sharing this beautifully detailed drawing of 40 George Street. Click here to see more of his gorgeous artwork.

As Olympic fever builds, Esther Lafferty talks to Oxfordshire Artweeks artist Annabel Eyres, an Olympic rower who learnt to row at Pembroke College, when she moved to Oxford to study art at  Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art. She describes how she managed to resist rowing for the first year, deterred by the 6am starts on the river in the cold winter months. However, the lure of the river in sunshine pulled in her in the following summer, and she was hooked.

This month Local Talent showcases a selection of oxen sculpture along Sobell House’s OXTrail, painted by local artists and where to find them in the city. The art trail will be taking place across Oxfordshire this summer. When it is over, the oxen will be herded together for an auction raising funds for the life-enhancing care provided by Sobell House Hospice.
