Hello Warwick Arts Centre is one of the largest multi-artform venues in the UK, based at the heart of a thriving campus at the University of Warwick. Since it opened in 1974, the Arts Centre has been a vital part of the cultural landscape of the Midlands, and has hosted some of the biggest names in music, across all genres. Our venues deliver a high quality, engaging, and diverse musical programme throughout the year, featuring the biggest names in rock, pop, folk, jazz, and world music. With world-class acoustics, we can create the perfect sound for any performance, be it a sonic soundclash of guitars and drums from an indie-rock band, or a hushed and delicate performance from a solo folk singer. We can be whatever you need us to be at Warwick Arts Centre.
