Roses & Castles Concert

Thu 23 Feb - 7.00 pm-9.30 pm

St Barnabas Church

You are invited to be part of a twilight adventure exploring the stories, sounds, songs and sights of the Oxford Canal. Following the success of the Oxford Canal Heritage Project and the Canal Festival, and building on the wonderful murals from the waterways project, a community of creative souls have come together to create a special evening at St Barnabas Church on Thursday 23rd February at 7pm.

The evening will include a specially commissioned sound-piece, an historically comic lecture on the canal’s history, unseen images of Oxford’s industrial past and stories of the old characters from the canal. Alongside performances from some of Oxford’s finest musicians including The Owl-light trio, Ben Avison, Idle Women and a canal super-group.

The Oxford Canal is a much loved and yet for many an undiscovered waterway which runs almost unnoticed into the city. Enjoyed by walkers, cyclists, anglers, and visitors, the canal is home to a large boating community, and it remains one of Oxford’s best kept secrets. The evening brings the community together for this magical soiree.

The evening will also feature a performance by the political editor of ITV News, Robert Peston, accompanying the Jericho Singers for a special version of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody!

Tickets are available from at £8.50 at Wegottickets. Concessions will be available on the door. We expect tickets to sell out quickly so please book as soon as you can.
