Mon 24 , Wed 26 - Sat 29 Sep, 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, plays and musicals, art exhibitions and public meetings. Recent events have included BBC Songs of Praise (Easter 2011) and a series of concerts by the Oxford Sinfonia in 2012. Concerts in 2013 have included the Oxford Gospel Choir, the Oxford University Brass Band, The Starfire Singers from Los Altos Methodist Church in California performing Justix, The Moonrakers Folk Group and a Piano Recital by Alexander Ardakov.
Facilities: Toilets, disabled access, rehearsal rooms, refreshments (no alcohol) sometimes available if provided by promoter. No parking facilities.
New Inn Hall Street,
“The Queen is Dead, Long Live the King”
Queen Elizabeth II is dead, and a new monarch takes the crown as his own.
As King, Charles finds himself torn between his own political views and the ceremonial role the monarchy plays within the British Parliament. Meanwhile, Harry feels disillusioned and starts dating a staunch republican, Jess, who makes him question his life and family. With Charles threatening to overthrow the Commons and Harry wanting to “descend into the mass”, will the monarchy survive?
Mike Bartlett’s Olivier and BAFTA winning drama draws on the structure and style of a Shakespearian history play in this gripping exploration of the clash between Crown and State.
