Live Music Venues
  • gigs in the langdale or pubs!
  • Rowing machine, the plough, the Robin Hood, the new inn, the chequers etc.
  • the pit, red lion, youth center, field(trying to hook up a summer gig down the skatepark)
  • A couple of the local pubs have rooms for bands
  • A recent impromptu stroll down Corn Street unearthed Ned Kelly playing in the Eagle Tavern one Sat night so its seriously time to update your records about the tavern now its been rehauled and represented. Gone are the cobweb covered OAPs and ancient decor replaced by life, music and real laughter. The apparently permanent seal on its old doors has long been removed and the atmosphere is both welcoming and refreshing. Landlady informs me that local bands will be a regular feature from now on.
  • The best is either the Red lion (Barn) or the Pit (Holly Bush). Both very small, which means you get talknig to a LOT of people. Can be good and bad really!
  • The Pit (back of the hollybush). Back in the days of 97/98, the thriving scene in and around Oxford meant some ace bands played there. But why did most of the Witney bands want to be the Pixies???
  • Some good bands in the Barn out the rear of the Red LION. Good for pulling slappers as well, if you are into that sort of thing...
  • The Red Lion (Barn) now has it's own web site you can find it at
  • The Pit at the Hollybush The Barn at The Red Lion Both are not too bad actually however, anyone aged over 20 may want to avoid the Pit as I think Nirvana broke up in 1994.
  • the pit , ok so its not that big but its good for young bands
  • Now The Red Lion for us 30 somethings
  • The Pit, Can be found Out the Back of the Holly Bush
  • 'The Barn' - some good live music, behind the Red Lion in Corn Street
