We’re part of a national initiative launched by the Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of 100s of independent music venues.

by Ropetckle Arts Centre in Shoreham By Sea, England, United Kingdom

Ropetackle Arts Centre is a multi-award-winning, purpose-built venue that attracts some of the biggest stars in the UK and beyond. Our friendly atmosphere, first-class programming and intimate performance space all combine to make every event a memorable one. From live music to comedy, children’s shows to films, workshops and talks to literary events – and all things in-between – there is something to suit all tastes and budgets.

Our UK venues face permanent closure because they are unable to generate enough income to cover even their reduced costs during this lockdown period. The majority of their income is raised by ticket sales and bar sales - both of which are at an all-time low or non-existent due to the forced closure of the venues.

Your donations will be used to keep our venue afloat during an extended period of closure, and prepare for the grand re-opening (whenever that may be!).  You will be DIRECTLY supporting small, local independent business.

We are a registered charity that is buoyed by an amazing band of volunteers (including the trustees), Ropetackle is the ultimate entertainment and community hub for Shoreham-By-Sea and beyond. 

We work closely with local schools and colleges, theatre companies, businesses and many other organisations to bring the widest range of arts activities to as many people as possible.

The arts are important for everyone: for children, whose imaginations and language skills are developing, for adults who want to be uplifted and inspired, and of course, for the performers who bring so much talent to each show.

Our superbly equipped auditorium seats 200, or 350 standing. We have a separate mezzanine space (for small events or meetings), two well-stocked bars, plus a large light and airy foyer/café.
