Have visited the Salisbury Arts Centre on many occasions and haven't been disappointed. Most recent concert featured Eddi Reader and it was brilliant.

Probably due to the publicity generated by the Salisbury Arts Festival (27 May-11 June 2016), I ended up visiting the Salisbury Arts Centre (for the first time!), because a number of its events were based there. It's located on Bedwin Street, right by the Bourne Hill Registry Office - and the reason I most probably haven't noticed it before is... More

We only go to see Opera live from the Metropolitan Opera New York, bur can heartily recommend it. A carefully converted church, staffed by a volunteer crew, it can be a bit chilly in the depths of winter but the friendly and cheerful staff make up for that.

A night at the Art Centre Theatre was extremeley rewarding as, along with the rest of the theatre Go-ers we laughed the whole way through a performance of " The Falcons' Maltesers" The play was a spoof private eye story based on a book by Anthony Horowitz and was brilliantly performed by a cast from the natural Theatre Company.

Thanks for your lovely review, so pleased you enjoyed 'The Falcon's Malteser'. We have lots more coming up in the spring so watch out for our new programme being launched next week (7 December) and if it's family entertainment you enjoy, what about 'Oddly' on Saturday 12 December? We look forward to welcoming you back soon. More

This venue is invaluable to Salisbury; as without it there wouldn't be much going on. (bar the playhouse and a few other infrequent events or venues - and the Salisbury festival) So phew! Love having somewhere to see bands, and stuff for children. It is inclusive, and has varied interesting events. Only downside is (agreed) food is a little uninspiring,... More

The Arts Centre is in a lovely converted church, and as a result it is a stunning looking venue. I have seen some great music and comedy there (also seen some rubbish comedy too). The bar could do with stocking a wider range of drinks but was not expensive. The crowd is usually friendly and the staff are polite. There... More

Boring and uninspiring run by 'Green movement' staff who have an attitude. You can have a coffee and a cake ..the carrot cake tasted like sawdust and I was charged nearly 6pounds! Not much else to say really. The best part are the daffodils in the photo but they were all out of bloom when I arrived.

Love the arts centre, music, comedy, courses, regularly visit the altar club, comedy, beer festival, lunch time events, my only gripe is the lack of decent indie rock music, the last 2 year they seem to have gone away from known or up and comming bands and while diversity is good i feel they have strayed a bit to far...

Not much going on here other than a very quiet cafe. Wierd things on show. Couldn't make out what they were trying to achieve here.

I'm sorry to hear about your experience - late summer is the quietest time of year for us so maybe try to visit again in our Autumn season when we have lots more performances and activities happening. We will take what you said on board and try to think about how we present the venue on our quieter days but,... More

For nearly 40 years, Salisbury Arts Centre has been the hub of the arts community in Salisbury. More inclusive than other venues, and with a strong commitment to providing entertainment and opportunities to all sections of the community, and appealing to all kinds of audiences.
