  • On foot or in a car: The Barn is located on the right hand-side of St Giles at you leave town, about 100 metres past the Lamb and Flag pub. The entrance is directly opposite the Oxford War Memorial which is located between Banbury Road and Woodstock Road where they merge into St Giles.

From the North:

  • By bus from the Banbury (North) side: The nearest bus stop to The Barn is the Keble Road stop on Banbury Road just before it merges into St Giles.

The private view at the Town Hall in Oxford was a great success and as you can see from the photo below we had a crowded house!

You still have time to catch the exhibition as it runs until Sunday 26th of February.  The Town Hall is also hosting the Oxford International Art Fair on the 24th 25th and 26th.  If you make it for the final weekend you’ll be able to enjoy some fabulous works of art provided artists local to oxford and artists from further afield.

We look forward to seeing you there.
