CATWEAZLE CLUB. For those of you who don’t know (where have you been?) Catweazle Club is an intimate, magical space that allows musicians, singers, poets, storytellers and performance artists of every imaginable hue to grace the stage of the East Oxford Community Centre every week. A chance to sit, to listen, to connect, to inspire and to be inspired …So bring along your instrument or just yourself and get involved!
HAMMER & TONGUE Since starting up Hammer & Tongue night six years ago in a city with no grassroots poetry scene, Cowley Road residents Jim Thomas and Steve Larkin’s poetry night has grown into the biggest spoken-word slam promoter in the country. At OX4 they will be presenting a youth poetry slam.
