Arts, Culture and Creative Industries

Eastleigh Borough offers the community and its 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 at The Point as well as The Berry Theatre in Hedge End which presents inspirational work for children and families.

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 Ford, Greyladyes Arts Foundation in Bursledon and Sea Sky Art in Hamble.

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, The Sorting Office, Tec Hub and The West Wing Studios

Cultural Strategy

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.

Cultural Strategy

Eastleigh's Cultural Strategy was developed in consultation with partner organisations, local stakeholders, education providers and the wider community. The strategy outlines how the Culture Unit at Eastleigh Borough Council will take a leading role in delivering an innovative cultural agenda. Eastleigh’s Cultural Strategy is available to view online by clicking on the image to the left or by clicking on the link below.
