About

Drawing on a rich heritage dating back to the 18th Century, Stamford Arts Centre is a thriving multi-arts venue that provides the opportunity to experience and participate in a wide selection of art forms from theatre, cinema, music and poetry to sculpture, dance, painting and drawing.

Throughout the year professional touring theatre companies visit our 166 seat theatre as well as five weeks of drama from our resident Shoestring Theatre Company. The theatre also doubles up as the cinema which, over the last 25 years, has become a film hub for the local area, showing a huge variety of genre including Hollywood blockbusters, Art House and World Cinema.

The beautiful ballroom regularly hosts a range of concerts including our popular classical music season that runs from October through to May every year, as well as dances and workshops. The ballroom is a wonderful venue for a wedding or special occasion, and is available to hire along with several other multi-functional rooms for everything from meetings to evening functions. 

Our tremendous gallery is spacious, light and airy and is free to look around. The main gallery accommodates an interesting and varied programme of contemporary exhibitions from local and international artists including photography, painting, textile, drawing and sculpture.

Art pieces are also displayed in the foyer coffee shop, which generally exhibits work by our artists in residence, as well as in the ante room where works by the Welland Valley Art Society are displayed. Both the Cellar Bar and Gallery Bar provide a diverse selection of drinks and nibbles. 

If you would like to start, advance your skills or refresh a hobby then do take a look at our workshops for both adults and children that run daily. Drama, singing, dancing and art are all catered for. So whatever your taste, we’ll have something for you.
