About Us

Battersea Arts Centre is a home for radical artistic ideas. We believe in the power of performance and collective imagination to spark positive change.

Based in an iconic building with a radical history, we host welcoming and inclusive spaces where communities, artists and audiences can connect and be creative. We give people the resources to develop artistic ideas that are bold and unconventional, and we aim to put accessibility at the centre of everything we do.

In collaboration with Touretteshero, Battersea Arts Centre is the world’s first Relaxed Venue. We aim to embed access and inclusivity across all our activities. This includes a relaxed attitude to noise and movement during performances, a designated chill-out space for guests and ear defenders are available for those with sensory sensitivities.

All shows at Battersea Arts Centre are now available on a Pay What You Can basis, as part of our ongoing commitment to finding new ways to break down barriers to engagement. Tickets for most shows start at £3, so you can choose a price that works for you.
