The Beacon is lighting up lives in Inverclyde

We are the all-day, all-week arts centre at the heart of Greenock's Waterfront regeneration. Year-round we present an array of performances in both our main auditorium and studio spaces, from national arts companies such as the National Theatre of Scotland and Scottish Opera, to large-scale community musicals and amateur theatre, captivating dance, uplifting music and side-splitting comedy.

But we are much more than this.

Bringing the arts to the community and beyond

Our outreach and creative learning programme invites you to get involved, no matter your age, ability or background, in exciting, fun-filled theatre and dance projects, as well as boundary-pushing masterclasses and workshops; local, national and international artists are showcased in constantly changing exhibitions in our upstairs gallery; our spectacular, versatile meeting spaces are available to hire for events large and small, public and private; and Café Beacon is the first-choice place to hang out with friends or enjoy a little me-time.

And all this comes with unrivalled, ever-changing panoramic views across the Firth of Clyde to the Highlands beyond.

At Beacon Arts Centre we want to make the world a better place through our wide range of activities for the local people of Inverclyde and our visitors from far beyond.

We invite you to come inside!
