The Ashcroft Arts Centre is named after Dame Peggy Ashcroft and was opened by Dame Peggy in 1989, after being refurbished from its original use as a school. Since 2014 the arts centre has been operated by Hampshire Cultural Trust.

As well as our varied and exciting event programme packed with comedy, theatre and music of all genres, the Ashcroft offers a wide range of weekly, day time and evening classes suitable for all ages and abilities.
