visitors access to high quality professional arts, award-winning
cultural facilities, and one of the best outreach and creative
learning programmes in the country. There is a wealth of arts and
culture on offer and a wide range of venues, festivals and events
for residents and visitors to enjoy.
Venues of particular interest include Eastleigh's nationally
recognised centre for contemporary dance, theatre and combined arts

The borough is also home to the acclaimed jazz venue
The Concorde Club in
Eastleigh, the regional centre for music at Thornden Hall in Chandlers

Eastleigh is fast becoming recognised as a regional hub
for the creative industries and there are specialist
facilities and workspaces provided at The Creation Space,

We understand the word ‘culture’ to refer to the activities,
events and opportunities that bring our community and our visitors
together to enjoy the life of the borough.
