The very first digital Oxford Festival of the Arts ran from June 18 to July 5 2020 to replace the physical festival which we had to cancel due to the pandemic. Since our audiences couldn’t come to us, we decided to go to them because we were determined that there should still be a multi-disciplinary celebration of the arts, it’s what we’re famous for after all! #OFAvirtual has proved so popular that we continue to build on it and a digital element will be a feature of all future festivals.
You’ll find everything from our exclusive opening night arias from Joseph Calleja to fascinating talks by Prof Suzannah Lipscomb and Dr Janina Ramirez, heavenly singing by ORA Singers, swinging jazz from The Easy Rollers and Zoe Gilby, an in-depth interview with Shadow Chancellor Anneliese Dodds and much more. Scroll through to see our complete programme.
#OFAvirtual is free to watch if you’d like to make a donation to support the freelance artists and creatives who took part and our ongoing work, the link is here. Thank you.
