Welcome Back Shaftesbury! 

Our next event in the auditorium is a recording of a Bolshoi Ballet performance of Romeo and Juliet. Buy tickets here or at the Tourist Information Centre. The Box Office remains closed until further notice.

Click here to learn about our Covid secure venue and ticketing arrangements.

Even though live theatre might still be a way ahead, the Arts Centre is coming back to life and looking forward to providing audiences with some well-deserved entertainment. However, we still need help. We know it is a difficult time, but if you are able to make a donation to help us return live theatre and the Arts to Shaftesbury, it would be hugely appreciated. Click here to donate.

All memberships that were active on 31 August 2020 have been extended for six months.
