The present Heritage Centre is on the site of 2 earlier establishments.  Originally the “New Inn” in 1868 the site became “The Royal Oxford Music Hall”.  The following year the building, which is situated a few doors down from the court house, became The Criterion public house, with a music hall called ‘The Palace of Varieties’ situated immediately to its rear.  This offered “rational amusement for all classes” including in April 1876, a one armed juggler!
