Od Arts Festival is a weekend of free arts events in East and West Coker, taking its name from the stream that connects the two villages, and bubbling up a curatorial premise of rivalry.

You will find exhibitions and events popping up in unusual places from a 15th Century Manor house to a victorian factory, a local butchers to the village bus shelters.

Dare to cross the river, walk the road less travelled, stop to hear the sparrows and ask odd questions as we welcome you to the Od Arts Festival 2018.

To find out more about the artists taking part and to plan your visit check out the Od Arts Festival website.
