Yes Most Dear, this October 20th, Oxford’s Catweazle Club celebrates SEVENTEEN YEARS of running our beautilicious weekly performance space. Averaging around 15 different performers each week, x around 48 weeks a year adds up to well over 12,000 individual marvels which we have been blessed to witness over the years.
In that time we have seen and heard SO many under-the-radar geniuses, some fully formed, some in the arc of blossoming. We’ve had accolades from national press and and radio of course, but resolutely local is where it’s at. This space exists for everyone to express themselves, whatever they have to bring.
A more generous and loving audience you will not find anywhere (audience: they who listen). It’s a rare and beautiful thing we have going here, and I am eternally proud and grateful to be involved. Here’s to the next 12,000. Happy Birthday US!
