A small-in-size arts centre that punches way above its weight, for the size of the town. Excellent live theatre and music; a great panto; and really good, recent films. Why go to Newcastle or Edinburgh?

Small intimate theatre cum cinema as it should be done. In the last 12 months alone we've been to the Berwick premier of 'The Railway Man'; Lee Evans trial performance of his new show pre it's London run; Kathryn Tickell's wonderful new band, and other shows. The place also has The super Maltings Kitchen with superb views over the old... More

Every town should have a Maltings, unfortunately most don't. It is a jewel in the centre of Berwick, bringing all manner of performances, from the latest films, to some of the finest stage and music acts around. The main theatre is set out in the traditional variety theatre style, and offers a fine intimate stage and a digital film theatre.... More

This was the first time we had been to an event here, although we've had lunch twice in the bistro, and enjoyed it. The theatre was delightful and Jeremy Hardy was hilarious and outrageous and thought-provoking in equal measure. The forward programme looks varied and ambitious - we're booked in already for a music gig. Berwick is lucky to have... More

My wife and I attended the opening night of the Berwick Film Festival. The first movie was shown in the Maltings and we found the venue to be just lovely. A nice, compact theatre which was ideal for the showing of Mamarosh, however we both found it uncomfortably warm and by the end of the film we were both very... More
