Venue Information

Venue Description:
The Brewery Arts Centre opened its doors in 1972 when the premises was converted from the old Vaux Brewery.

Whitwell, Mark and Co ("The House of Whitwell") established a wine business on this site in 1757, with cellars said to hold over 40,000 gallons of wine and in 1853, the company built a new ale brewery in the garden of the Georgian town house that still fronts the Brewery on Highgate. In 1946 the firm was taken over by Vaux Breweries of Sunderland and in 1971, when they relocated the offices, the town house became a Youth Hostel and the industrial buildings began the conversion into the Brewery Arts Centre as we know it.

Since then it has hosted thousands of exciting and vibrant artistic events with many famous names gracing the stages of the Malt Room and Theatre performance spaces.

The Brewery has evolved to become one of the most important education centres for the arts in the North West with an extensive programme of arts based learning for all ages, abilities and interests.
