Ah, those were the days James and; I might add, we had the odd punch up now and again, but never pulled knives on each other.We didn't do drugs either!

Great days to remember for sure.

Drink in those days was a glass of Blackcurrant juice, or a squash in the former 'Grapes Pub' in George Street, Oxford.

Yes, I remember that also Doreen!

Above Boswells wasn't it....

As Brian said, back in January 2013, Bretts was above Boswells in Broad Street; but ODS was above something else in George Street, I can't remember what. I met my husband at the Forum in High Street.

Hmm, can't remember exactly, but I thought Bretts and ODS were the same thing. In fact I just asked my wife whom I met there and she thinks the same.

And yes the Forum was round the corner.

Same teachers, but two entirely separate buildings in different streets! Broad Street for Bretts and George Street for ODS. Forum in High Street.

I can remember Bretts School of Dancing in the Boswell Building but I'm also pretty sure that there was also another place of the same sort in George Street but I Can't remember its name.  Can any help?

Hi George and thanks for posting. As oit happens I don't remember the 'Michael & Anne' but I do know Shoe Lane of course and the building to which you refer. What year do you reckon that would have been?
