Darlington Arts Centre & Civic Theatre

Darlington's joint centres for the visual and performing arts are housed in Victorian and Edwardian buildings, linking the past to the present under one organisational umbrella. Together the Darlington Arts Centre and Darlington Civic Theatre provide a year-round programme of art exhibitions, theatre, musicals, films, dance and performing arts.

The theatre is distinctive not only because of its local Middlesbrough red brick, but also because its entrance is topped by a 64-foot pyramid-roofed tower, while the ornamental canopy is a replica of the original iron and glass one destroyed in a traffic accident in the 1960s.

In 1978, after it closed its doors as a teacher training centre, the Darlington Arts Centre was born. Officially opening in 1982 - with a theatre, ballroom, shop, new foyer, bar and Stripes Bistro - the Myles Meehan Gallery was added the following year. Then, in 2001, the Borough Council bought the building to ensure the continued local resource - one of the top regional arts centres in the country.
