I’ve had some of my best and most formative nights at this venue. Both as the cellar and when it was called The Dolly. I hope others will continue to do the same for a long time to come, including my son, if he knows whats good for him :-)

Would it not be more intelligent to save the extra money to protect against future changes in the law and gentrification? Rather than use your stretch goal to upgrade the toilets, air conditioning and sound system. All of which have been perfectly fine all these years.

So pleased we reached the target! More than happy to chip in again to make the place even better for many more gigs to come. 🎤🎸🎹🥁

Quickfix Recordings 27th November 2018

Over the years the Cellar has played a vital part in the gigging lives of all the acts we have worked with be it indie, metal, rock or hip-hop. We have enjoyed endless gig and club nights at the venue and our local Oxford music scene certainly would be lost and very dull without The Cellar.

Smilex 27th November 2018

The Cellar is a valuable asset for the local band and club scene and a stronghold for the alternative, we have been playing the venue since we were teens.

Edward Macdonald 27th November 2018

You have my eternal respect for keeping the oxford music scene down to earth... I'm right behind this and crossing my fingers all the way 'til we make it up that new fire exit on the first Bossaphonik of 2019....

David Thomas 27th November 2018

Congratulations on staying open. Looks like Oxford has officially overtaken London as the music capital of the UK. Good work everyone. We don't need any more Starbucks or Topshops homogenizing the high streets.

Charlie Humble-Thomas 27th November 2018

When the sun shines, we shine together Told you I'll be here forever Said I'll always be your friend Took an oath that I'm a stick it out 'til the end Now that it's raining more than ever Know that we still have each other You can stand inside the Cellar You can stand inside the Cellar, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh Inside the Cellar, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh Inside the Cellar, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh Inside the Cellar, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh
