OAF! stands for Open Arts Festival.
OAF! is a series of events both indoor and outdoors, promoting the latest and emerging talent covering music , dance, stand up and theatre.
At the heart of Royal Leamington Spa’s culture of creativity, we curate unique experiences that bring people together and break new ground in culture and the performing arts.
But we haven't always been based in Leamington Spa. With over 20 years experience working in the performance and arts industry in Australia, throughout Southeast Asia, Europe and the UK, we produce entertainment experiences that are concise, ensuring the production itself provides the biggest positive impact for the community.
We believe our story is a world of travel and determination to put on a great show. With the opportunity to have the Spiegeltents transformed into live performance venues, partnering with leading and amateur theatre companies, musical and dance acts plus stand up comedians, we go beyond the norm. From small scale productions in cemented car parks to large live aerial performances in botanical gardens, to light illumination and sound installations in woodlands and shopping centres - OAF! has a team that makes a smile and wonder come to audiences faces.
Our purpose is driven by our Code, let's call it the OAF! DNA that makes us tick.
So, do you want to experience OAF! for yourself? OAF! will be taking place across multiple indoor locations and outdoor green spaces in and around Royal Leamington Spa throughout the year starting in 2022. Go check out the What's On for further information.
We stand by our code to ensure our productions are:
OPEN - accessible, available, welcome, inviting, exposed and unfolded
ARTS - the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, the various branches of activity
FESTIVAL - a period of celebration, an organised series of activities and events, expressive way to celebrate glorious heritage, culture and traditions
