We are incredibly lucky to call this fantastic building with its amazing views ‘home’, but it’s not just our home, our doors are open to everyone… and we’re out there in the community too.

As well as two theatres for shows and rehearsals, we have an array of smaller spaces that allow us to deliver everything from youth theatre to afternoon tea dances to script writing classes. There’s always something going on at the Beacon but we think outside the four walls of our building too. We work with a variety of partners to take workshops, classes and activities out into venues in and around Inverclyde and beyond.

Giving young people an early taste of culture can be the start of a lifelong creative adventure and we want to be part of that journey.
