artsdepot is an award winning cultural hub. Our venue incorporates a 395 seat theatre, 148 seat studio theatre, gallery, café, bar, studios, and architecturally stunning public spaces.
We have been celebrating the arts since we opened in 2004. Every year, we welcome over 140,000 people who come to watch, learn or be inspired. With our vibrant programme of performances and exhibitions, we seek to surprise and thrill audiences of all ages.
In the financial year 2015 – 16 we received £300k of public funding from the Arts Council. We presented 494 events, supported 78 artists through 9 residency projects and provided 247 subsidised theatre tickets and free lunches for socially isolated older people aged 75+. As well as presenting work, encouraging artistic innovation and supporting artist development, we also engaged with people of all ages through our extensive participation programme. 8,918 children and young people took part in creative learning and performance opportunities at artsdepot in 2015 – 16, including 178 disadvantaged children & young people benefitting from subsidised workshop places.
Of the £300k grant received from Arts Council England artsdepot pays £280K back to the public purse in taxes, and artsdepot’s impact on the local economy is estimated at £1.5m.
