Warwick Arts Centre

In 1970, just five years after being established, the University of Warwick commissioned the building of an arts centre. Opening in 1974, the building won a RIBA award

Over the years, the centre has welcomed a range of performances and today, across the venue's five performance spaces – Butterworth Hall, Theatre, Studio Theatre, Cinema and Gallery – music, drama, comedy, film and community events are presented daily.

Warwick Arts Centre is served by the A45, A46, M40 and M42 and there are car parks throughout the town. Bus number 12 and Unibus drop off near to the venue and the 12 runs from the train station.
