About Ropetackle Arts Centre
Shoreham-by-Sea’s award-winning, community run arts venue on the banks of the river Adur.
Ropetackle Arts Centre is an award-winning*, community-run arts venue that attracts some of the biggest and best performing arts events in the UK. Situated in the heart of Shoreham, West Sussex, our goal is to stage events for all tastes and budgets for the good folk of Adur and beyond.
A registered charity, and staffed almost exclusively by volunteers (including our Trustees), Ropetackle Arts Centre is run by and for the local community. Friendly, welcoming, diverse and fun, we guarantee a great night out at a fair price.
Our superbly equipped auditorium performance space seats 200, or 350 standing. We have a separate mezzanine space (for small events or meetings), two well-stocked bars, plus a large light and airy foyer which houses our in-house café.
