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.
