Meet Me At The Oxford celebration event
Come and join us to celebrate the end of our Meet Me At The Oxford project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
Over the last 12 months we have collected stories from over 50 people about their memories and anecdotes of The Oxford Galleries in Newcastle.
The Oxford Galleries dance hall on Newcastle’s New Bridge Street opened in 1925 and was one of the most popular venues of its time. Over the years it went through many reincarnations and was known to generations of dancers and partygoers as Tiffany’s, Ikon, Ritzy’s and Liquid Envy.
The stories collected during our project have been brought together to create the "Meet Me At The Oxford" story book which will feature stories, memories and photographs from those that stepped through its doors.
Our celebration event will be an opportunity to find out more about the project, meet some of the storytellers and pick up a copy of the book.
