Offbeat: Oxford’s festival of local voices, new talent and endless creativity

Mon 9 - Sun 15 Sep

Join us in September 2024 for a festival of bold new performances by emerging and established talent showcasing works new to Oxford.

Offbeat is an exciting artistic partnership between three Oxford theatres — the Old Fire Station, the Oxford Playhouse, and the New Theatre. It supports emerging talent, encourages local artists, provides a platform for new voices, and gives the public a chance to see new and established talent bring previously unseen work to Oxford.

The festival supports artists to develop new work, take the next step in their careers and test new material within a supportive environment.

Join us between Mon 9 - Sun 15 Sep for the best new drama, comedy, music, dance, spoken word and more, get hands-on with creative activities on Gloucester Green, a market square between the three theatres, or enjoy outdoor performances and the chance to see behind the scenes with backstage tours.
