Art & Culture

Art in Kingston takes centre stage as the town has a buzzing cultural scene with numerous galleries, live music and an internationally renowned theatre.

As Kingston is a hub of creativity, there is something to excite all visitors and the town hosts many special art and cultural events which run throughout the year.

Kingston has a diverse and dynamic range of creative organisations working in Kingston to develop the arts, offering residents and visitors the opportunity to enjoy events and participate in the cultural life of the borough.

Catch a show at the Rose Theatre or the Arthur Cotterell Theatre. Both offer an excellent selection of classic and modern productions or visit Odeon Cinema at the Rotunda for the latest blockbusters movies.

Laugh your socks off at The Comedy Club at the Rose Theatre or Outside the Box Comedy Club at the Fighting Cocks pub.
