Swindon Arts Centre is one of the town’s most popular venues.

Situated in Old Town the venue has been presenting a range of performances since it opened in the 1950s. With an intimate auditorium it is ideal for small-scale touring productions and is also home to many of Swindon’s locally produced shows.


The programme regularly contains stand-up comedy, film and music of every description and some of the most original and inventive drama you will see. Alongside this the Western Players, Phoenix Players, Gilbert & Sullivan Society and others present their work each year. The Arts Centre is also home to Old Town Library.

HQT&H manages the Swindon Arts Centre on behalf of Swindon Borough Council.
