The first phase of Warwick Arts Centre’s 20:20 Project commenced in Autumn 2017 with a maintenance programme to refresh, renew and redevelop the foyer, theatre, studio and Music Centre. This Autumn you will see the results of this work, including a refurbished theatre, studio and a new-look foyer.

Phase 2 of the Warwick 20:20 Project starts this Autumn and will include the demolition of the Cinema and Mead Gallery and the creation of a new building to house three new digital auditoria, and a large, accessible ground floor gallery. The new building will showcase the very best in contemporary art and entertainment including a new restaurant, offering a welcoming environment for everyone. This work is due to be completed by Autumn 2020.

Warwick Arts Centre will remain open throughout the works with a full programme of events and shows taking place. This Project will ensure that Warwick Arts Centre will be the region’s leading cultural centre – a place where creativity, collaboration and innovation thrives and ensures that Warwick Arts Centre will be a key venue in Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture 2021.
