The New Oxford

Situated in historic Bexley Square, and a central part of Sounds folklore for an era now, The New Oxford has been home to some of our most memorable moments. The late Frank Sidebottom, had one of his very last performances here in 2010, The Slits’ Viv Albertine performed here in 2013 and several unforgettable editions of Good Afternoon‘s infamous day parties have happened here from 2016 onwards.

All this in the back room of a pub that can house around 50 people. That’s only slightly more than the 40 ever-changing draught beers and 20 real ale pumps specialising in high quality Belgian Beers that you’ll find. A must visit for any day out in Salford.
