BRIDGWATER ARTS CENTREArts Centre, Gallery and Performance

We are the oldest funded Arts Centre in England having been formed in 1946 and we were the first business to receive funding from the Arts Council.  The building includes theatre space, a bar, a gallery, and several rooms for hire. We are very much a “people” venue and are proud to be an integral part of the community.

We run a theatre programme of performance, music and film; plus classes and clubs in a wide range of arts disciplines. Our facilities are available to hire, for professional and community groups.
