We visited Stamford with a friend from overseas, the Arts Centre was a mine of information which we all found useful. The galleries displayed some beautiful paintings, well worth viewing. The place was clean & staff friendly & helpful.

The Arts Centre in Stamford is one of the main attractions of living in this town. It provides a selection of films of all types, live shows and speakers, as well as a list of art classes that would rival anything in a larger town. There is a constant changing exhibition in the gallery which is always good value as... More

The home of Stamfords tourist board, a lovely very reasonable priced cafe, also a small intimate cinema. They often have various events here too. And just as a practical point, if you get caught short in need of a loo, nice clean facilities! The buildings around the art centre are a good example of Stamford's Georgian buildings, St Mary's street... More

The Arts centre is our local cinema. It shows a great mix of mainstream Hollywood movies and the best of international movies. It also screens Opera and Live drama from Opera houses and the National Theatre. The team that work there do a really great job. The audience is pretty grey - haired, attracting many who would never I suspect... More

Being a local I often enjoy attending events at The Stamford Arts Centre, and takemuch pleasure in doing so. The staff is fantastic overall and they have a great selection. I sincerely commend their efforts in bringing such good programmes to the residents of Stamford. That said, That is why it I feel rather bad for writing this review. Recently... More

This place is stuck in a curious time warp - a lovely Georgian building housing a mean, 70s utilitarian, council "community centre". The whole interior needs to be re-furbished for this millennium, especially the chronically cramped seats in the theatre - despite these being only 22 years old. However, one can almost forgive the terminally dreary atmosphere on account of... More

It is so fantastic to have a facility like this in Stamford. I go regularly to the cinema - and even if the latest movies arrive here a little later than they do at the big cinema complexes in Peterborough - it is nice to be able to go locally and in a lovely friendly atmosphere. The Arts Centre also... More

Varied and imaginative programme of events and classes; both modern and off-beat films; great rooms for hire. Pleasant enough daytime cafe; the Cellar bar would be an acquired taste.

Offers good selection of films and live shows/musicians in a convenient small theatre. Nice cafe and sweet shop, good coffee and cakes and free newspapers to read. Also hosts the tourist information and an art gallery so all in all a great hive of activity in this small market town. Stamford would be poorer without it.
