The North Wall is an arts centre with a vibrant public programme of live music, theatre and dance. The programme places an emphasis on new and innovative work, offering an alternative to the mainstream.

The venue is based on the campus of St. Edward’s School in the heart of Summertown. Built on the site of a Victorian swimming pool, the site was converted by leading architects Haworth Tompkins, winning several architectural awards, and opened in 2007.

The arts centre offers a 200-seat theatre space as well as a public art gallery. Exhibitions change every three weeks, and admission is free.

Jane Duff: Wildsong

North Wall Arts Centre, South Parade
Oxford, Oxfordshire OX2 7JN United Kingdom
Free

The natural world is Jane Duff’s inspiration. Brought up on the edge of Snowdonia, and working as a guide in the Himalayas, she feels at home in wild places and seeks them out in order to walk, photograph and paint. Painting in-situ encourages her to react instinctively and emotionally to the landscape, weather and light. She is most at home painting on rocky shores, cliff tops, saltmarshes and moorlands of Cornwall, Wales and North West Scotland. In Oxfordshire, Jane is…

“When we get to the end of the story, you will know more than you do now…” This Christmas Creation Theatre will be really turning down the temperature and transforming The North Wall into the frozen wastes of Lapland. Gerda’s best friend Kai has gone missing and she can’t find him anywhere. Luckily there’s all sorts of helpful people she can ask; a river, some rose bushes, a crow, a robber girl and her talking doves…. you get the picture.…

Max & Ivan: Commitment

North Wall Arts Centre, South Parade
Oxford, Oxfordshire OX2 7JN United Kingdom
£12 – £14

Say ‘I do’ to the triumphant return of Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominees Max & Ivan, as seen in BBC One’s W1A and heard on BBC Radio 4’s The Casebook of Max & Ivan.

It’s a show about dreaming big, growing up, and trying – but ultimately very much failing – to make it in the band. Directed by…

Rhys James: Snitch

North Wall Arts Centre, South Parade
Oxford, Oxfordshire OX2 7JN United Kingdom
£13

In early 2019, Rhys was asked to go back to his school and inspire the Year 11s. Given that teenagers are a nightmare and there was no fee, he ghosted the teacher who had emailed. Bit of a shame really, given that he’s figured out the true circle of life, has solved parenting despite having zero children, and even thinks he can predict the curriculum of schools in 50 years. Maybe he’ll inspire some Year 11s in 2069. Mock The…
