Salisbury Arts Centre is a meeting place for artforms, artists and audiences. We love the arts and we love people; we exist to bring them together. Our mission is… To surprise, challenge and include people in thought provoking creative experiences.
Why? Because communities thrive when imaginations fly.
Basically we believe that the arts make life better and that everyone should have the opportunity to experience them. We present theatre, music, dance, comedy, family shows, films, exhibitions and workshops. We regularly offer free activities – from Live Lunches to Family Festivals – so people can try things without worrying about money. We know everybody likes different things. We love that individuality and we make it our business to offer a diverse programme to appeal to varying tastes. We realise not everyone will love everything we do but we don’t think that’s a bad thing. We’re confident you’ll like something. We take pride in being brave enough to show things that are challenging. If it gets people thinking and talking, we think that’s positive!
Salisbury Arts Centre is a registered charity that is passionate about giving everyone the chance to experience the arts. At the root of everything we do is the belief that communities thrive when imaginations fly. Creative thinkers solve problems and spark endless invention, building exciting communities that people want to be part of. By working with the community and programming performances, films, workshops and exhibitions that spark creative thought, Salisbury Arts Centre attracts over 60,000 visitors to 1605 events each year. We work with young people to develop their skills and confidence and help them to achieve their big ambitions. We support artists to create their work and share it, providing a local platform for artistic talent to thrive. We do it all out of a love of arts, people and community. Last year more than half of our participatory events were completely free to those taking part.
