Offbeat is a festival of brand-new theatre, comedy, dance, and music taking place at the Old Fire Station and Burton Taylor Theatre and the Playhouse Main Stage, as a partnership between Arts at the Old Fire Station and the Oxford Playhouse. 60 shows over 8 days means our Reception area at the Old Fire Station will be busy with Artists, volunteers and audiences. It is also a shared space with Crisis UK whose Receptionists work there, welcoming homeless and vulnerably housed people to the work of Crisis.
