Ethical Property Company 

The Old Music Hall stands out amongst the many eateries and independent shops for which the Cowley Road has become famous.

The building itself has always had community at its heart. Originally built in 1898 as a public hall, library and three shops, it has since been a music hall, theatre and cinema, as well as home to Blackwell’s Book Shop.

Today, as well being The Ethical Property Company’s Head Office, almost 40 other fantastic organisations work within its varied and atmospheric offices – mainly charities, social enterprises and small local businesses.

Being based on the diverse and vibrant Cowley Road allows tenants to benefit from the great choice of local pubs and cafés nearby, while remaining close to good bus and train links, Oxford City Centre, and the M40 motorway.
