Conference Oxford welcomes Oxford Playhouse!

Oxford Playhouse joins Conference Oxford

We are delighted to announce that Oxford Playhouse has joined Conference Oxford.

The Playhouse has a long history of working with the University of Oxford, acting as the main theatre for performances by the Oxford University Drama Society (OUDS). Centrally located on Beaumont Street, in close proximity to the Ashmolean Museum and many of the University’s colleges, Oxford Playhouse was opened in 1938 and was the last new theatre to be opened before the Second World War. One of the most famous student performances took place at the Playhouse in 1966, when Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor starred alongside student performers in the OUDS production of Dr Faustus.

In addition to a rich programme of productions, the Oxford Playhouse also offers a variety of rooms and flexible spaces for private hire as follows:- Main theatre for 640 with stage and balcony, the Foyer and Circle bars, the Richard Gladstone Room, the W Lucy Room and the Top Room – with capacities ranging from 15-80.  All the rooms are bright, filled with natural daylight and are suitable for a variety of events. The W Lucy Room is beautifully set out and tastefully decorated and has all the charm of a Georgian drawing room. For more infomation, check out their venue page.

The Playhouse is currently running a special offer of ‘Cake of the Day and any hot drink for £3.50’, between 10am and 5pm until Wed 28th Feb.

The Oxford Playhouse is a welcome addition to Conference Oxford’s portfolio of unique University and college venues. If you would like any further information about Oxford Playhouse, please do contact Noel McCarthy, Front of House Manager on 018565 305 351 or noel.mccarthy@oxfordplayhouse.com
