Following government advice about Coronavirus, Cornerstone Arts Centre is currently closed to the public. Visit our blog post for more information on this closure: here.
Cornerstone Arts Centre is still Didcot's community hub even in this unprecedented time where we can't be physically open. We will continue to illuminate theatre, visual arts, community spirit and everything else under our umbrella in the best way we possibly can online.
For a while, our website is going to look a little different. We are creating pages with details of our new digital initiatives including virtual galleries, streaming theatre and bringing classes into your living rooms so you can enjoy us even during this period. We will continue to be a community resource and we look forward to seeing you again in person when this is all over.

In the lead up to Beer & Music Festival 2019 at Cornerstone we are releasing some info about our exciting line-up every week until the Festival itself! This week our spotlight is on another one of our headliners...
Tiger Mendoza is the alias of producer/remixer/multi-instrumentalist Ian De Quadros. Following the release of the Hope Sick EP in 2009, Tiger Mendoza has released a number of EPs and albums as well as producing remixes for artists and bands including Public Enemy, DJ Shadow (who he also supported), and Little Red. Live shows are a shapeshifting beast, based around massive breaks, bass and, more than anything else, energy.
His most recent releases, Old Ideas 1 and 2, released in 2017 and 2018 respectively were a attempt at trying to deal with personal and national events over the last the 2 years and involved collaborations with a number of friends old and new from the Oxford Music scene including Kid Kin, Luke from Daisy, Asher Dust and a track with rapper / poet Pierquin which earned a spot in Nightshift's tracks of the year 2017.
You could sum up Tiger Mendoza as an accident – but a happy accident. The music is an attempt to create great songs with beats, guitars and whatever other sounds and nonsense happen to wander past at the time.
