About the venue

St Michael's and All Angels Church is situated in Summertown, North Oxford. In 1904, the existing church of Summertown, St John's, became too small for the regular congregation and funds for the construction of a new church were raised. The work began four years later and on 11 February 1909, the foundation stone of St Michael's Church was laid by the Countess of Jersey. The consecration of the church took place on 29th September of the same year, and is commemorated by two small lights in the East window.
The newly renovated St Michael and All Angels is just seconds away from the lively Banbury Road, with plenty of great cafes, restaurants and shops to browse around after the concert.
