For those unfamiliar to the Centre, we have been around for over 60 years, offering some of the best exhibitions by local, national and international artists in a dazzling array of mediums. Among the influential and innovative artists with connections to Plymouth Arts Centre our exhibitors have included Beryl Cook, Patrick Heron, Tracey Emin, Allen Ginsberg, Peter Greenaway, Ralph Steadman, Vong Phaophanit, Richard Deacon, Andy Goldsworthy and Sir Terry Frost.

This rich and varied history has created a stimulating and exciting venue to visit, which is a truly a part of the cultural heart of Plymouth. Alongside our gallery programme, we show the best ground-breaking independent and foreign films within our cinema, at the cheapest prices in town. Why not combine an evening's entertainment with a delicious meal in our restaurant, PAC Food, or simply pop in and unwind during the day with a mouth-watering choice of cakes, teas and coffee. So, for a slice of the best creative talent on offer all in one building with food and friendly faces, Plymouth Arts Centre is the place to be.
