Culture and The Arts
The Borough of Eastleigh has a vibrant
cultural infrastructure and 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 UK. 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
internationally recognised centre for contemporary arts, dance
and performance at The Point and the
new centre for drama at The Berry Theatre in
Other popular venues include the acclaimed jazz venue at
The Concorde Club, the
regional centre for music at Thornden

by Greyladyes Arts Foundation.
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.
