Building Development Fund

Fit for the Future

Be part of the Bridport Arts Centre story

Bridport Arts Centre has been the cultural heart of the town for over 40 years. We are always looking at how we can improve the experience we offer to visitors, including developing our facilities so that they are fit for the future.

In 2010 Stage 1 of a new capital development plan was completed, transforming the front of the building.

We have lots of ambitions to continue to improve the interior of the building, with the aim of making the Arts Centre a more sustainable organisation and a better place to visit.

Plans include:

  • Improving the main visitor access to the building
  • More effective use of internal spaces throughout the building
  • Improved foyer layout including re-siting the box office and including space for trading
  • Installing a lift to improve access to the gallery
  • Upgrading the gallery lighting and other facilities
  • Improvements to the theatre infrastructure, including the dressing rooms
  • Re-designing the catering offer including the bar, café and kitchen
  • Improved toilet facilities
  • Creating additional office space for the expanding staff team

We will be pursuing these ambitions in a measured way as funds become available.
