We are pleased to say the Box Office is now fully open at the normal times of 10:00 – 12:30, Monday to Saturday.

Tickets are on sale for The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, Belle Street in Great Lane, and Lawrence after Arabia, and more will be coming soon.

Until we are advised to the contrary, our COVID-safe seating plan and one-way system will be in operation.

Ice Cream will be on sale if you have the right money (£2) and we are investigating a safe way to serve pre-ordered drinks.

We are now ready to welcome you to a COVID-safe experience at the Arts Centre.

With the welcome the return of Shaftesbury Fringe 27 to 30 August 2021, we’re delighted to be one of the many Shaftesbury venues available to performers.

This year, we’re hiring out the theatre only and have limited availability. Prices are £75 for a one hour slot and £130 for two one hour slots (even if two slots are on different days).

Full details of The Fringe are available at www.shaftesburyfringe.co.uk and further details of Shaftesbury Arts Centre’s facilities are available here

To book a slot or find out more, please contact fringe@shaftesburyartscentre.org.uk
