I went with a couple of friends to provide a change from the usual open mic night we go to in Newbury. It has a pleasant bohemian vibe and exudes cosiness. Every performer gets to perform one piece, be it a song, a poem etc...More

Sometimes amazing, sometimes awkward; it's always variable, but always intimate, interesting and entertaining. Great bar, lovely people, fantastic craic. Highly recommended.

You can hear a pin drop in the East Oxford Community Centre on a Thursday night, in between the clapping, the stories, the poetry and the acoustic sets. It is an open mic without a mic, which is the essence of its charm. Not everything...More

I've been studying here for over two years, and nothing beats Catweazle. It's a true artistic community which really welcomes you in, and it's an absolute privilege to be a part of. It's by far the most intimate place I've ever played (and listened), and...More
