Just stopping for lunch we ask questions at the ART CENTER. Then we realise they were open for lunch. On the board a simple and lovely menu. We chose the home made quiche that was served with a nice salad and crispy chips. We manage to have a beer and a nice coffee at the end. The price was great... More

A lovely building we visited which also houses a cinema, Tourist Information office, a café and a Booking/Ticket Office for local events including Theatre and Cinema. There were a number of forthcoming events being advertised and the location is central for residents and visitors. We visited for tourist information and to view the building.

We had our son's 8th birthday party there, 11 children to watch Angry Birds, then we hired a sweet little room right next to the cinema entrance where we had a little bit of food and cake. From the moment we booked it, the staff were absolutely wonderful, always interested in giving us the best value, not about rules and... More

Saw a brilliant stage production at the Stamford Arts Centre of a little known play called the Shaughraun; an Irish melodrama and farce. The lead possesses all the traits of a true Broadway star. His stage presence can't be denied or his ability to improvise. He holds the audience in the palm of his vagabond hands which unlike his thimble... More

Stamford Arts Centre is wonderful for information, events and enjoying some good grub! The cafe serves a wide variety of drinks and food - I would recommend the curly chips. Lovely place to be for a nice wind-down with friends.

This local art centre embodies everything that is good about Stamford. Displaying and promoting so many local events and at the heart of the community. Providing a venue for local groups and organisations and a showcase for local talent. A treasure within a treasure. I thoroughly recommend a visit if you are passing through as it also houses the tourist... More

So few of the previous reviews have mentioned the origins of the Arts Centre. The "cinema" is the theatre built in the 1700s. Not a lot you can do about leg room, although there are some rear seats with more space, and also wheelchair space. The ballroom, which you might not see if you just pop in is also original... More

As visitors to Stamford we are glad to go to the Arts Centre on our visits; the town would be the poorer without it. On our most recent visit the foyer and cafe were teeming with life - aftermath of a children's' event maybe, so we went on through to the gallery where some original ceramics works were on show....
