Wexford Arts Centre first opened its iconic red doors in 1974, and are very proud to be the oldest regional arts centre in Ireland. Situated in the heart of Wexford town adjacent to the town library and a stone’s throw from the National Opera House they are lucky enough to be based in the historic listed Cornmarket building, running a year-round programme of contemporary art exhibitions offering free admission for all, with guided tours and talks available on request.
Wexford Arts Centre hosts workshops for all ages in Art, Creative Writing, Music and Drama, alongside a vibrant calendar of events in Theatre, Music, Comedy, Dance, Cinema, and a strong jazz programme. A concessionary rate for seniors and group discount rates to all events is available.
The Centre work alongside many local community groups and provide subsidised rental rates for various clubs and organisations within the county. They also work closely with Wexford County Council and offer discounts for members of Wexford’s Cultural Companions.
The Wexford Arts Centre is currently undergoing phase three of development works which will see the addition of a lift to our upper gallery and theatre space and finally allow it to be fully accessible for all members of the community and hopefully re-establish long lost links.
The Centre’s ethos is Arts for All, Arts for Life and their aim is to encourage and inspire creativity within the local community and create connections through the love of all things ART.
