We are an arts centre on the banks of the Thames in Brentford, West London. We believe art is for everyone, and we pride ourselves on reaching parts of the community that don't usually access the arts as well as those that do. We offer a high-quality and varied arts programme which includes independent cinema, children's theatre and a wide variety of artist-led workshops for children and young people.

The programme is always changing, but it's easy to keep up to speed with what's happening by signing up to our email mailing list.
