About us

Welcome to The Wednesday

The Wednesday magazine is a platform for different voices and is conversational in nature.

The Wednesday group is a group of friends who used to meet in Oxford UK every Wednesday afternoon from 16.00 to 18.00 in the Opera Café to exchange ideas and discuss philosophy, art and poetry. They produce a magazine which reflects their discussions but also introduces work from friends and readers who wish to contribute from afar. It reflects their friendship and journeying together in the world of ideas.

During the covid restrictions sadly the group could no longer meet in person however they have successfully continued to meet virtually via zoom at the same time each Wednesday, which has allowed new people from around the world to participate in these interesting debates.

Whilst we would have loved to have returned to the Opera Café this would have excluded our friends from outside of Oxford and the UK. The decision was made to continue to meet via zoom, which has worked well for the majority of the group and allows a wider level of debate and sharing of ideas.

We thank the Opera Café for their help and use of their facilities and encourage any readers visiting Oxford to ensure that they pay the Opera Café on Walton Street a visit, and continue to support this lovely café.

 The Wednesday magazine is published on the FIRST Wednesday of each month,  the book of these magazines is printed at the end of each year.

New contributions of articles, art or poetry are always welcomed and should be sent to the Editor.
