Warwick Arts Centre’s 20:20 Project commenced in Autumn 2017 with a Phase 1 maintenance programme already underway, refreshing, renewing and redeveloping the existing foyers and theatres and due to re-open in July 2018. Phase 2 of the Warwick 20:20 Project will commence in October 2018, with the demolition of the existing Cinema and Mead Gallery and the creation of a new building to house three new digital auditoria, and a large ground floor gallery. The new building will also provide a spacious new foyer designed to showcase the very best in contemporary art and entertainment and a new restaurant, offering a welcoming environment for everyone.

We will remain open throughout the works with a full programme of events and shows taking place within the venue and in an onsite temporary theatre in 2018.

We have now secured funding to ensure that Warwick Arts Centre will be the region’s leading cultural centre – a place where creativity, collaboration and innovation thrives.

The project totals £17.1 million and ensures that Warwick Arts Centre will be a key Coventry venue in its year as City of Culture 2021.
