Details

Artrix is a versatile multi disciplinary arts centre with a 300 seat auditorium, a spacious dance studio, meeting rooms and a visually stunning foyer/gallery. The auditorium’s balcony and side galleries give it an unusually intimacy, while its flexible central seating can be retracted to provide a dance floor. A striking feature of the building is its height and structure, which provide the acoustic qualities needed for chamber and orchestral music one session, and for amplified music or surround sound cinema the next.

The venue’s annual programme is made up of well over 200 specialist film screenings, over 400 workshop sessions and 12 exhibitions as well as participation and educational projects in the local community. It’s live programme of over 200 performances includes chamber and orchestral concerts, jazz, folk and blues gigs, top stand up comedy, cutting edge theatre and dance and more traditional community-produced drama.

Managed by a charitable trust, Artrix works closely with Bromsgrove District Council and NEW College of Further Education to ensure that the service it offers is fresh and relevant while its active partnership with Bromsgrove’s dynamic arts community ensures the widest possible local cultural engagement. Its pool of over 60 volunteers, meanwhile, keep the foyer bar and front of house services running smoothly and provide the venue with its very special friendly ambience.

Artrix is ideally located for access from South Birmingham and Worcestershire, minutes from the M5 (Junctions 4 and 5) and M42 (Junction 1), from which it is just a short drive on the A38 to the venue’s ample free car parking (follow the brown signs). It is also only a short signposted walk from Bromsgrove town centre and its bus station, and a couple of miles by taxi from the railway station.
