Offbeat

Offbeat

In June 2016, Oxford Playhouse and Arts at the Old Fire Station presented the first Offbeat, a brand spanking new festival in the heart of the city showcasing over 50 shows in 7 days that all were new to Oxfordshire.

After the success of 2016, the festival returns in 2017, featuring even more fantastic theatre, as we bring 70 shows in 10 days to your front door. All tickets are priced at £10 or less and the festival runs from 23 June to 2 July 2017. The festival showcases theatre, dance, comedy, music, family shows and spoken word, brought to you by upcoming and established artists from Oxfordshire and across the UK.

What people are saying about Offbeat..

The world is complicated and we need to be able to look at complexity, nurture the talent that will help us understand the world around us better, celebrate difference and retain our sense of humour. Offbeat sums this up.
Jeremy Spafford, Director at The Old Fire Station

Offbeat will create a sustainable platform for new work in the city, whilst playing a significant role in the UK festival circuit, with a long-term focus on artist development.
Louise Chantal, Chief Executive at Oxford Playhouse

Last year…

At last year’s inaugural Offbeat festival more than 1500 people attend 54 performances with highlights including Ross & Rachel by James Fritz, a documentary screening of Yasmin Fedda’s Queens of Syria and stand-up comedy from names such as Rosie Wilby and Viv Groskop.
