The Studio

Founded by the Youth of Bicester (YoBs), The Studio was once an empty shop space and a depressing symbol of High Street recession in Crown Walk. The space was donated to OYAP by Sainsbury’s (as their charity of the year) for the YoBs to create Bicester's most vibrant and creative youth arts cafe!


This creative art space, run by young people and for young people, offers a café, arts workshops, half term art projects and a weekly timetable ranging from animation, street sessions, music gigs and every Saturday, creative arts and crafts for the whole family.


The friendly and lively sessions are part of a growing arts provision in Bicester supported by OYAP and as such, we welcome both your comments and suggestions about arts in Bicester.


The Studio is your space so why not get involved!
