The aim of everyone involved with LiveArts is to make you welcome.

LiveArts occupies the splendid late 18th Century church of St Mary the Virgin at the heart of Banbury and since 2002 has offered a performance and exhibition venue to a wide range of local, national and international artists, choirs and orchestras.


LiveArts at St Mary’s is a group of volunteers who, on behalf of the church supports, promotes and organises a programme of events, about 30 each year, both midweek and weekend. These include numerous local choral societies and orchestras (often supporting local charities) as well as well-known artists, Sir James Galway, Hayley Westenra, St Agnes Fountain, alongside the Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra and the Black Dyke Brass Band.

We look forward to welcoming you to the events listed in our programme schedule. For information about staging an event go to Hiring facilities.
