Arlington Arts Centre opened in October 2006, with singer KT Tunstall being both the guest of honour and the first artist to perform on stage – alongside students from Mary Hare.

The venue has since maintained a strong reputation for its sometimes daring programme of live music, featuring breaking artists and emerging talent alongside better known performers.  The programme of live events is diverse, offering high quality comedy, visual arts, theatre and family entertainment.  However the emphasis still remains on extraordinary experiences that have yet to make it to the mainstream.

Arlington Arts’ fully furnished suite of conference rooms and the auditorium have also become regarded as one of the finest training and corporate events facilities in the south of England, being used regularly by St John Ambulance, British Equine Veterinary  Association, NADFAS, idox, Intensive Marketing, BSHAA and many others.

Arlington Arts Centre is a trading name of Mary Hare Services Ltd. As such, all of the profits from Arlington Arts Centre go directly to Mary Hare, the national charity for young deaf people.
