Pegasus is an arts centre established in East Oxford since 1962 specialising in a range of performing arts for young people. We also work in collaboration with professional artists and in parallel with the making and presentation of new work by established and emerging artists and companies.
In 2010 the venue underwent a refurbishment, thanks to one-off restricted capital funds, to provide new workshop, dressing room, costume store, dance and rehearsal spaces for participatory activities, visiting and resident companies as well as creating a new foyer and cafe for the public.
The main performance area, the Pullman Stage is named after the venue’s major supporter and patron Philip Pullman.
Since re-opening in September 2010, Pegasus is able to offer a wider range of workshops, projects and course places for up to 3500 young people and adults, up to 20 in-house productions and 70-80 visiting productions including commissions each year.
Today we also create our own productions in-house and in partnership with other companies and venues. Recent productions have been Betty Bumble’s Time Tumble (2011), Winnie The Witch (2012) and co-productions with Gonzo Moose on Grimm and Grimmer (2011) and What The Dickens (2012).
