Colchester Arts Centre – the little church with the big attitude deep in the heart of Essex.

Well that’s how we describe it anyway.  It sort of works, it at least gives a flavour of what we’re about.

Because just how do you describe a venue that can put children’s entertainer Palfi the Clown on, on the same day as Cradle of Filth? Where a Farmer’s Market in the morning becomes a comedy club in the evening, where folk enthusiasts can sit happily knitting (and they do!) in the exact same spot a ferocious mosh pit of teenage dancing takes place the following night?  And where the beautiful historic architecture of St Mary’s Church dating back over a thousand years, plays host to some of the newest comics, most modern choreographers, some of the coolest DJ’s and some of the freshest talent in Britain.

Over the years we’ve promoted Coldplay, Eddie Izzard, Graham Norton, Harry Hill, Catherine Tate, Jo Brand, The Libertines, Ash, The Killers, The Strokes, Phill Jupitus, Mick Jones, Bill Bailey, Jack Dee, Count Arthur Strong  – all before anyone had ever heard of them of course  – plus the likes of jazz legend Ronnie Scott and even the late lamented and much loved Brian Johnston the cricket commentator.

Our passion to present new work bring great bands and comics to Colchester burns more brightly than ever.  Our business is all about fresh ideas, new acts, new art forms and vibrant new ways of working.  We can’t stand still. We embrace the new, the quirky the original and yes, the surreal.
