St John The Evangelist is a large Grade 1 listed church, which was built between 1894-6. It is part of St Stephen’s House, an Anglican theological foundation in the University of Oxford. The organisation runs a thriving arts programme under the heading of SJE Arts and features both classical and popular music. The building provides a very attractive setting for acoustic acts and seats about 280 comfortably. A bar is provided during concerts. There is some street parking but it is also within walking distance of the Tesco car park on the Cowley Road.
The Bullingdon, Oxford, there has been a desire to share with the good people of Oxford, the music we love which is not readily catered for in the City. The Bullingdon for us was an obvious choice of venue being well established on the live music circuit. In 2013 there was extensive renovation to the front and rear of the pub where the large large dedicated room has a stage, lighting & their own sound system as well as bar facility. In 2014 with new people at the helm there are plans for more work to be carried out. This is primarily a standing venue.  Though there is some street parking in the area there is a large pay and display car park at the rear of Tesco’s opposite.

The Granary at first was the only venue used. A small separate room at the rear of The Grand Junction Pub in the High Street. With it’s own bar, no stage and mixed seating and standing, if you could get more than 80 people in then you couldn’t move, but there are still fond memories of this little venue which played host to some fantastic nights of music. Sadly in 2007 fire caught hold of this building and although fortunately the damage was minimal, the brewery decided to make alternative arrangements for it’s use after renovation, so it was necessary to find another venue, hence the use of Tingewick Village Hall.

Fat Lil’s prides itself as being West Oxfordshire’s only dedicated live music and comedy club. It is a little like a half size Bullingdon with a capacity of 140, but with the facility of chairs and tables as appropriate. Street parking is available outside and the venue has the advantage of its own restaurant next door which provides “Classic dishes from North, South, East and West of the USA”, which were “inspired by rock ‘n’ roll road trips across America.”

The Radcliffe Centre  in Church Street, Buckingham, was originally a meeting hall which is now owned by the University. In 2012 after a renovation, which included a dedicated lighting rig and the installation of tiered seating, the capacity has been slightly reduced to 150 and is more suited to acoustic performances. There is ample parking a few minutes walk away. The Radcliffe is situated in a residential areas so there is a curfew at this venue of 10pm to 10.30pm, Doors open at 7pm and most shows start by 7:20pm there is also good wheelchair access.
