The inspiring legacy of New Theatre Oxford
On the corner of George Street in the centre of Oxford, New Theatre Oxford was first built in 1836 as a music hall venue and has undergone several reincarnations since. The present building dates back to 1933 and featured a revolving stage and beautiful art deco interior when it first opened to the public in 1934. Threatened by the advent of television in the 1950s, the theatre had to move with the times and began to put on rock and pop concerts from the 1960s onwards - a successful expansion of its repertoire that ultimately helped to save the building. Now regarded as the city's main commercial theatre, New Theatre Oxford offers a diverse range of plays, dance productions, concerts and musicals, cementing its position at the cultural heart of this university town.
