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.

We are a small, friendly staff team here at the Ashcroft. We love meeting with and talking to our regular customers and also welcoming new customers to our arts centre.
