Coronavirus Bulletin

Following a request from the government for venues to voluntarily shut down as part of ‘social distancing’ measures, Bridgwater Arts Centre will be closing as a venue for the immediate future from 3 pm on Thursday afternoon (19th March 2020)

We are already looking at options and will endeavour to reprogram certain events but please be aware that there is no certainty in this. Customers who have bought tickets are welcome to make contact by phone or email for refunds though for those events that are being re-arranged, your current ticket purchase can still be used.

Thanks to all for your support.

Further announcements will be made in due course.

Bridgwater Arts Centre has been in existence on it’s Castle Street site since 1946. We are the oldest funded Arts Centre in England.

It is currently a volunteer run independent organisation. There is a managing board of directors and trustees, supported by a network of volunteers all of whom have a part to play in making things happen.

We have an intimate but atmospheric 160-seat theatre and our other facilities are available to hire, for both professional and community groups.

To stay up to date with arts centre news, visit here, or our Facebook & Twitter pages. We do not currently have a newsletter. You will be the first to hear when we are in a position to publish further news.
