Warwick Arts Centre is situated at the heart of the University of Warwick in Coventry. One of the largest arts centres in the UK with audiences that number 200,000+ a year, it’s much more than a single venue.

We are one of the most significant presenters and co-producers of contemporary performing and visual arts in the UK. Our programme range includes classical music, theatre, live art, dance, music, literature, comedy, opera, family events and visual art. Our outstanding performance venues – Butterworth Hall, Theatre, Studio, Cinema and Mead Gallery, plus new Helen Martin Studio (creative space/rehearsal room) make us quite unique.
