Friday 23 June to Sunday 2 July A makes-you-think, laugh-out-loud, in-your-face fringe festival celebrating the best in new theatre, comedy, dance and spoken word


Friday 23 June to Sunday 2 July Following the success of the inaugural Offbeat Festival 2016, Arts at the Old Fire Station and Oxford Playhouse are delighted to be working together again to bring you Offbeat 2017. We received so much support and wonderful feedback following the first year that we’ve made it even bigger! We’ve been overwhelmed by the quantity and quality of applications, and have selected a whopping 71 shows for you to enjoy over 10 days. From 23 June to 2 July Oxford will be home to a vibrant array of theatre, music, comedy, dance and spoken word with every available space at our two venues packed to the rafters! All shows are £10 and under, and we hope that you will make the most of the festival experience and see as much as you can. In fact, if you buy tickets to just 3 shows, you’ll get a free drink on us! The Old Fire Station Bar will be open each evening so you can meet to chat about what you’ve seen, and with the help of our partners at BBC Introducing, we’ll be curating 4 nights of live music. Everything in Offbeat is either brand new or new to Oxford, and we hope you’ll enjoy picking through this brochure and planning your time. Do take a risk – you’re sure to find something that makes you think, laugh, cry or look at the world a little differently. With plenty of workin-progress shows priced at just £5, you might even catch the Next Big Thing at a bargain price. Festivals take a lot of work, and we’d like to say thank you to the wonderfully talented artists, the teams at Oxford Playhouse and the Old Fire Station, our brilliant producer Vicky Graham, and all our volunteers – we couldn’t do it without you! And thank YOU - our audience. Without your support Offbeat wouldn’t be here for a second exciting year. So please do spread the word, bring your friends, and most importantly, have a super time. Louise Chantal Director/ CEO Oxford Playhouse
