Took my wife and mother-in-law to Stamford Arts Centre to see a play. All seats had a great view. The acting was superb and we really enjoyed the play. They have a cafeteria for snacks and coffee, and ice cream at half time.

The service and standards have been consistent for the seventeen years I have visited this café and it is my favourite in Stamford. Beautiful traditional style baguettes and sandwiches are served and large and well cooked jacket potatoes. A range of other options include bagels, toasties, homemade cakes, scones and a selection of hot and cold drinks. Cleanliness is first... More

Have been a visitor for over 20 years. Have seen many Art films that wouldn't be shown at other cinemas. For me it's been a life line of Culture. Where else is there? Thank you very much.

Really friendly staff, great shows and love the intimacy you get in a small theatre, it's like being sat in your front room!

Well worth a visit. The centre has a cinema,art gallery,coffee shop,bar and ballroom which is used for varied shows. We went to see guitarist John Etheridge with Kit Holmes which was a real treat to see one of the uk's best guitarists. The staff were all friendly and chatty and I look forwards to many more future visits.

In the enchanting town of Stamford, the Arts Centre is a 4 in 1 delight. Beautiful rambling building, delightful theatre/cinema, friendly tourist info, and a great cafe with excellent value simple food. We often travel 50 miles to see shows in the theatre, as we love its intimacy.

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
