Ropetackle Arts Centre is a multi-award winning arts venue in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex.
Situated on the banks of the River Adur in Shoreham-by-Sea, Ropetackle Arts Centre is a multi-award winning, purpose-built venue presenting some of the biggest and best performing arts events in the UK.
Our friendly atmosphere, quality programme, and intimate performance space combine to make every event a memorable one. From live music to comedy, family theatre to film, workshops to literary events – and all things in-between – we have something to suit all tastes and budgets.
A registered charity run by a small team of professionals supported by 80+ volunteers, Ropetackle is an arts and entertainment hub at the heart of the community. We work with a range of local and national organisations to bring the widest range of arts activities to as many people as possible.
We believe the arts are important for everyone: for children, whose imaginations and language skills are developing, for adults who want to be uplifted and inspired, and of course, for artists and performers who bring so much talent to each show.
We have a superbly equipped auditorium seating up to 200, or 350 standing. We have a multi-purpose mezzanine space for classes and activities, plus a large, light and airy foyer and café, alongside two well-stocked bars.
