Arts Organisation

LiveArts is a voluntary arts organisation that promotes and organises an annual programme of both professional and community events at St Mary's Church. The funds raised from the regular concert bookings and ticket/bar sales are used to develop further performing arts activities as well as to maintain the Grade 1 listed building. The venue is the largest of its kind in North Oxfordshire and is a vital resource for community groups and schools to stage large events. Each year, over 25 events are held with a total audience in the region of 7,000. We have over 30 volunteers who help to support LiveArts by stewarding, running the bar, operating the lighting, sound and staging. We are in the process of applying for funding to purchase new Exhibition Panels & lighting to enable our venue to be used for exhibitions and conferences.

In addition, LiveArts is committed to supporting younger and older people through its outreach programme of annual workshops. This is the most important work that LiveArts carries out in the wider community by enabling young and old to benefit from taking part. In June 2009, LiveArts will be working on an Intergenerational Workshop Programme called 'Bridging the Gap' that involves dance, creative writing, poetry and photography. We will be working with up to 120 young people from six primary schools and 60 older people from the local community.

Anyone wishing to find out more about our venue can visit or contact the LiveArts Administrator during office hours by calling 01295 253329 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Fridays from 9am - 11am or email
