The North Wall is an Arts Centre in Oxford that has been created for the benefit of emerging artists across a range of disciplines. Based on the campus of St Edward’s School, this award-winning facility offers a fully flexible 200-seat theatre, a public art gallery and studios for dance and drama.
The North Wall programmes children’s theatre and other family events for a range of ages approximately once a month. We host workshops & projects too so that families can have the chance to get creative themselves. Past workshops include shadow puppetry, origami, Noise Band, pop-up book making and more.
Step through the Wall and come on an adventure! Children aged 3–11 are invited to join The North Wall Explorers’ Club. Each time they come to see a show, they’ll collect a sticker to add to their Explorer’s passport – and once they’ve completed five Special Theatrical Quests, their sixth comes absolutely free. New Explorers also receive a membership badge. There are free parties with arty activities and a members’ newsletter, The Explorer Times.
We want to make sure our audience have a good experience when they visit us, so we’re proud to meet Family Arts Standards as set out by the national Family Arts Campaign.
Our family-friendly facilities include:
The North Wall Tuck Shop serving juices and snacks, including raisins and sweets
We offer free “lap tickets” for anyone wishing to bring a babe-in-arms. Please call ahead to book this free ticket when you book your other seats.
