The Catweazle Club lies somewhere between a folk club and an open mike night, with a really amazing atmosphere of creativity and sharing amongst it's dedicated followers.
The website says:
"Arriving in Oxford in 1994 with nothing but an acoustic guitar and a heartful of songs, troubadour Matt Sage moved onto a boat on the Oxford Canal.
Having searched in vain for somewhere creative to call home, he had little choice but to set up his own space with the deranged fantasy that people of a like mind might come together for inspiration, the sharing of ideas and a real sense of community."
By all accounts, the deranged fantasy became a reality and Catweazle reached cult-like status in Oxford. It's been going for an impressive seventeen years.
The club is held on a Thursday night in East Oxford Community Centre.
