About

OffBeat is a hive of new performance in Oxford.

It’s a festival of brand-new theatre, comedy, dance, family shows, spoken word and music. It’s a place for you to see something which wouldn’t usually come here. It’s a blind date with a show you could fall in love with. And – lucky you – it’s right on your doorstep.

Take a chance on something exciting. 

Offbeat 2019 will take place 18 - 29 June. Applications will open soon.

A collaboration between Oxford Playhouse and Arts at the Old Fire Station, with performances across the Old Fire Station and BT Studio.
