Od Arts Festival returns 15-17 May, bringing exhibitions, performances, film and workshops by local and international artists to not-so-sleepy Somerset. New and specially-sited artworks will pop up in cafes, halls, houses, chapels and fields around the villages of East Coker and West Coker.

With the guiding theme of ‘Alone with Everybody’, the festival will explore loneliness – what it is, how we experience it, where it comes from, and how it might be addressed. A programme of playful, experimental and performative artworks will probe different aspects of aloneness, and ask visitors to consider how it might be liberating as well as difficult to be alone.
