Lyth Arts Centre, deep in the countryside, is housed in a beautiful old building surrounded by trees and ancient stone walls.
From the outside it retains the character of a Victorian village school but the interior has been imaginatively converted to house a dynamic multi-purpose arts centre.
Set deep in the countryside, Lyth Arts Centre is housed in a beautiful old school building surrounded by trees and ancient stone walls. From the outside it still retains the character of a small Victorian village school, the former Barrock Public School, while the interior has been adapted and extended to become a multipurpose theatre venue and exhibition space.
Most of the programme and events is devoted to presenting the work of professional British and international artists and performers and the centre also acts as a stepping-off point for local artistic activity. The main aim is to promote work of the highest standard.
