Oxford theatre: Dogs don’t do ballet

Dogs don’t do ballet

Marko John’s are the Oxford Socks.  We’re based in Oxford, and are proud to be the official sock supplier to several Oxford University Colleges.  On this, our new blog, we will highlight (and review) events and more from around Oxford.  If you have an event, venue, or restaurant that you’d like to see mentioned here please let us know. This is the first of these posts, and is inspired by the play that my 2 year old daughter is currently out watching…


Today the Cornerstone theatre company are putting on a performance of Dogs don’t do ballet.  Aimed at 2-5 year olds, the play tells the story of Biff.  Biff is no ordinary dog…  My daughter loves the book – she may be a harsh critic – and we’ll get her review of the show on here later!

For something aimed at older children (“adults”) check out the Old Fire Station on Thursday (21st Feb 2013) for the launch of the Oxford Human Rights Film Festival, and the theatre’s ‘Scratch Night‘.  The Old Fire Station is an inspiring initiative- find out more about it here.


This is what they say about their Scratch Nights:

Arts at the Old Fire Station and UnderConstruction present a regular Theatre Scratch Night. An exciting new opportunity that provides a  monthly platform for artists in Oxfordshire to present, try out and experiment with ideas in the form of short script extracts, movement or improvised theatre. The night will usually consist of three pieces with feed back given immediately after each short performance.
