Supported by Rutters Solicitors and Proctor Watts Cole Rutter

Although the usual Snowdrops Exhibition has had to be cancelled, we will be displaying a small selection of Snowdrops artwork in the Gallery windows from 1st February.   We hope this may brighten your day as you pass by, or even inspire you for next year!

We will reopen the Gallery as soon as we are able but in the meantime keep watching the windows. There will be changing displays of artworks from the planned exhibitions whilst we are closed.

We are aiming to reschedule The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe to March/April. All tickets already booked will be valid for the corresponding date in the new run. If you wish to change your booking, please phone the Box Office and leave a message, or send an email with your existing ticket details and your wishes to tickets@shaftesburyartscentre.org.uk.

Could you help us continue to bring live theatre and the Arts to Shaftesbury in these difficult times?
If you are able to make a donation, it would be hugely appreciated. Click here to donate.
