Support Us

Each year we bring Oxford alive with a multi-faceted arts festival that has something for everyone. As well as the two-week pinnacle of our activity in the summer, we work throughout the year to present performances between festivals and continue our education and engagement projects working with children and communities who may have less access to the arts.

A sponsorship package with OFA aligns your brand with a well-established and respected event and connects you with our community through the power of the arts.

Our physical festivals regularly enjoyed audiences of over 20,000 at diverse and exciting Oxford-based venues. This year our first ever online festival, #OFAvirtual, has to date attracted over 14,000 views of the performances on YouTube and Facebook all of which credit our sponsors.

We gained coverage in local and regional press, broadcast outlets and lifestyle/arts websites. Our online coverage alone achieved a readership of 6.02M (source: Coverage Book 2020).

We keep ticket prices low and many events are free. This year the whole of our 18-day digital festival was free. We can only do this with the financial support of our sponsors.

There are many benefits to becoming an OFA sponsor and we would be delighted to talk to you in more detail about what we can offer. Please email info@artsfestivaloxford.org or call 01865 242191.

You can also support us individually as a donor. Oxford Festival of the Arts is part of Magdalen College School which is Registered Charity No. 295785. Donations help us create our annual celebration of the arts and support artists and creatives (vital in these unprecedented times).

All donations, no matter what size, are most welcome and they make you an OFA Champion! Donate £100 and you become a Gold Champion and to say thank you, we’ll give you two tickets to a show of your choice at next year’s festival.

Thank you for supporting the arts.
