Formed in 1984, Colchester Arts Centre's mission is to promote, stimulate and nurture a a diverse series of arts events of the highest quality, responding to specific needs within the local community and championing diversity and respecting the environment.
Colchester Arts Centre provides a place for people to come and experience a wide variety of live arts performances in a beautiful, atmospheric setting. Whether it be comedy, live music, theatre, dance or children's shows, we offer a place of acceptance and tolerance where people in our community can share and enjoy live performance. We also run a variety of arts projects for local and national artists as well as children's arts projects.
Our organisation provides a platform for artists to showcase new work as well as established performances to offer a variety of events which meet the interests of the community within which we sit. We enable our audiences to visit a unique performance environment and this contributes towards the positive benefits this can bring to our community.
