Tue 1 - Sat 5 Oct, Wesley Memorial Church
Although there has been a Methodist presence in New Inn Hall Street since 1783, the present church was built in 1878. To celebrate the centenary in 1978, the interior of the church was re-ordered replacing the pews on the ground floor with chairs. As a result, we have been able to use this space not only for worship but also for concerts, piano recitals, plays and musicals, art exhibitions, public meetings and lectures. We hosted BBC Songs of Praise (Easter 2011) and more recently the Oxford Gospel Choir, the Bach Choir, The Oxford University Orchestra, the Oxford Reunion Wind Orchestra and the Los Altos Methodist Church California Starfire Singers in their production of ‘Borderless’. We have also featured our own in-house theatrical productions of ‘Amazing Love’ (2017) and ‘Time and Again’ (2019).
Facilities: Toilets, No parking facilities, disabled access, rehearsal rooms, refreshments (no alcohol) sometimes available if provided by promoter.
New Inn Hall Street,
Handbagged by by Moira Buffini
The Poll Tax. The Miners’ Strike. The Falklands war. The Brixton riots. The Brighton bombing....Interesting times indeed.
With great theatricality, Handbagged imagines what may have happened at the Queen’s infamous weekly meetings with Margaret Thatcher.
Entertainingly told and packed with satirical humour, the two women collide as they share their opposing views of Britain’s role in the world. With a supporting cast of Ronald and Nancy Reagan, Geoffrey Howe, Denis Thatcher and others, Handbagged is funny, sharp and mischievous.
Be sure to bag a ticket for this wickedly funny and brilliantly astute West End smash hit comedy.
Duration: 2 hours 10mins with interval
