Based in Hatch End, Harrow Arts Centre is the only professional multi-artform venue in the London Borough of Harrow. Throughout the year our thriving arts venue hosts fantastic events encompassing music, theatre, comedy, dance, film and much more.
We work in close partnership with many local organisations and community groups to deliver an inclusive, educational and accessible programme of events and activities for the diverse community of Harrow.
Harrow Arts Centre (HAC) was built on the site of an old school and has been in existence since 1988. At the heart of the complex is the magnificent Elliott Hall, a Grade II listed auditorium which seats over 400 people. The Studio is a superb and intimate 120 seat purpose-built theatre. Our Hatch End Suite is popular for conferences and weddings and the complex boasts a number of meeting rooms, rehearsal spaces, art rooms and even a dedicated dance studio.
Simply Daisy’s Café and Daisy’s in the Arts Bistro opened their doors in 2012 offering quality food and drink in addition to free wi-fi. The Bistro operates a bar for evening performances. During the same year Hatch End Library was relocated to HAC’s main building.
Our mission at HAC is to always provide new and exciting experiences at reasonable prices across the entire arts spectrum. Our venue is always putting something on for everyone, be it young people, families or older people from all backgrounds. Feel free to browse our website for events and activities that are certain to cater to your interest.
