Every year, Oxford’s Old Fire Station produces a brilliant Christmas show, which always sells out, and often goes on to the West End.

From smash hit Mrs Delgado, to Chris Bush’s quirky musical The Last Noël, the OFS Christmas shows always bring something new, relevant and fitting to Oxford’s theatrical table.

This year, OFS wants to bring you Glacier, a brand-new play by comedian Alison Spittle (The Guilty Feminist, Wheel of Misfortune).


It’s a gorgeous festive comedy about wild swimming, female friendship, and what happens when you throw your wedding ring into a lake.

“as a community we can make Glacier happen together!” 

Problem is, OFS doesn’t have the money to produce it due to grant cuts, but are so determined to make it happen that its has launched a massive fund-raising campaign. (Donate here oldfirestation.org.uk/donate/glacier).

The OFS Big Give campaign now needs to raise £10,000 by Friday September 29 and thanks to PBJ Management, every public donation will be matched and doubled. Donate here oldfirestation.org.uk/donate/glacier

OFS’ Ellie Parker explains: “Producing great theatre and commissioning new writing is expensive. These days most artistic work is made possible through public funding. Without it, things often can’t be produced at all. 

“But we feel Oxford’s arts scene needs something which reflects both the magic and the messiness of this time of year. Something aimed at adults which is real, heartfelt and different. Glacier is going to be brilliant, and we can’t wait for you to see it. 


“So we have four weeks to raise £10,000, knowing that as a community we can make Glacier happen together. 

“So if you can’t be good for goodness’ sake, be good for theatre’s sake because we’re looking forward to seeing you in the audience.”
