Oxford of the Arts
Welcome to Oxford Festival of the Arts – a whirlwind of culture and creativity in Oxford! We’re currently putting together our #OFA2019 programme together. If you want to be the first to hear any announcements please join the mailing list here.

The two weeks of the

Proud to be in Oxford, Oxford Festival of the Arts aims to become an incubator for the arts, a laboratory for experimentation and innovation, a place where diverse communities identify with and feel at home in, a festival with a spiderweb of networks, partnerships and collaborations, a virtual space where different artforms collide to create something new and exciting, a festival which goes out to the people and, ultimately, a vibrant artistic hub for the city.
