About

The Guildhall Arts Centre is a community-centred venue that aims to offer its customers innovative, stimulating and quality arts’ experiences.

Housed in what was Grantham’s town hall, jail and sessions hall (see Guildhall History) the Arts Centre is part of Cultural Services provided by South Kesteven District Council (SKDC) along with Stamford Arts Centre and The Bourne Corn Exchange.

Our venue is predominantly a receiving theatre where we bring in professional touring shows and also hire the venue out to professional shows. In addition, Grantham has a thriving amateur scene and several groups from the area hire the venue for their productions. We have an annual Christmas pantomime, which for 18 years was produced in association with director Douglas Gorin and now will be in partnership with Polka Dot Theatre Company.

Alongside the shows, the Arts Centre is also a hub for workshops and community activities. We offer several workshops for a range of ages (see Regular Workshops) and our rooms are in constant use by businesses, organisations and individuals for meetings, workshops, fairs, conferences and parties (see Weddings & Room Hire).
