The Quay Arts Centre is the Isle of Wight’s leading art gallery and venue for live arts events. It is situated in a converted 19th Century brewery warehouse complex located at the head of the River Medina in the centre of Newport.

The complex was refurbished in 1997 by award winning architect Tony Fretton and is supported by The Arts Council of England and the Isle of Wight Council.

Facilities at the complex include 3 galleries, a 134 capacity theatre, a Crafts Council-listed shop and a popular café/bar with a reputation for serving some of the best home-cooked food on the Island. First class conferencing facilities are also available.

The Centre’s three gallery spaces and café walls are home to an acclaimed regularly changing programme of Visual Arts. The extremely high quality work on show is sourced not only from the Island but also from mainland and international artists.

Quay Arts’ theatre is named after Anthony Minghella, the Island-born Oscar-winning director and is one of the best venues on the Island to see live performances. The programme offers theatre, comedy, music, dance, kids and literature with a cinema that shows the best in world and classic film.

The Quay also operates an artist workshop complex, Jubilee Stores, which is home to the Classes & Workshops programme. Included in this facility are two large workspaces, a print studio and seven artist studios that are home to some of the most talented artists in the region.
