North Wall Arts Centre
The North Wall is an Art Centre in Oxford that has been created for the benefit of emerging artists across a range of disciplines. Based on the campus of St Edwards School, its core mission is educational and through its outreach work it aims to bring aspiring artists from across the nation together with cutting edge Theatre, Dance, Film and Music professionals. It seeks to break down barriers to both participation and careers in the arts. It is also a valued resource for the local and wider Oxfordshire community.
Since we opened to the public in 2007, we have programmed a diverse range of work such as comediens Sarah Millican, John Bishop, and Rhod Gilbert, and musicans Camille O’Sullivan, John Tavener, The Unthanks, and Spiers & Boden.

Nominated as Folk Singer of the Year 2015 at the BBC Radio 2 Awards, soloist Emily Portman will be touring with The Coracle Band, a stellar cast of musicians who featured on her third album, Coracle, now brought together in an ambitious live show.
Joining Emily’s celebrated and longstanding collaborators Lucy Farrell (viola, saw, voice) and Rachel Newton (harp and voice), The Coracle Band features virtuosic string player Sam Sweeney (Bellowhead, BBC Folk Musician of the Year 2015) guitarist M G Boulter (Lucky Strikes) and classical percussionist Toby Kearney (2006 BBC Young Musician of the Year).
Together The Coracle Band will realise the full breadth and beauty of Emily’s finest work to date. Percussion, vibes, pedal steel, electric harp and soaring strings combine with a veritable choir of voices.
