Overview
More
Artrix is a versatile multi disciplinary arts centre with a 300 seat auditorium, a spacious dance studio, meeting rooms and a visually stunning foyer/gallery. The auditorium’s balcony and side galleries give it an unusually intimacy, while its flexible central seating can be retracted to provide a dance floor. A striking feature of the building is its height and structure, which provide the acoustic qualities needed for chamber and orchestral music one session, and for amplified music or surround sound cinema the next. The venue’s annual programme is made up of well over 200 specialist film screenings, over 400 workshop sessions and 12 exhibitions as well as participation and educational projects in the local community. It’s live programme of over 200 performances includes chamber and orchestral concerts, jazz, folk and blues gigs, top stand up comedy, cutting edge theatre and dance and more traditional community-produced drama.Managed by a charitable trust, Artrix works closely with Bromsgrove District Council and NEW College of Further Education to ensure that the service it offers is fresh and relevant while its active partnership with Bromsgrove’s dynamic arts community ensures the widest possible local cultural engagement.

The band were very good but spoilt by unhelpful duty staff. There are better venues around the area with more inspiring foyers,

The gig was brilliant. The Artrix has comfortable seating and clear views of the stage from all seats. Sound quality is very good. The staff were friendly and helpful I would like to make one suggestion that the bar stock a local real ale

Have mostly seen films at The Artrix but their range of events is excellent for a "small town venue". Good value for money. It only loses a star for me because, as with many places, the seat rows are just too close together and I...More

Response from Simon P | Property representative |
For the majority of performances it's seated. On some occasions it's standing with seating in the gallery, balcony and first few rows of the stall but this doesn't happen very often.
