The d.@rt Centre, your local arts centre!

We are situated just off junction 7 of the M27 in Hedge End, and are part of the community hub on the Wildern School site which includes The Berry Theatre and Wildern Leisure Centre.

The d.@rt is a community venue for all ages who wish to engage with performing and visual arts. With an emphasis on arts, crafts and music, our centre-run courses are all led by professional practitioners or artists in hour long, half day or full day workshops, including children’s holiday activities.  We also encourage local artists to exhibit work in our foyer space, sell through our cabinet or perform at open mic nights or performance platforms. We also offer a variety of cookery courses for all ages.

The d.@rt centre boasts specialist rooms for dance, drama, art and music. These spaces are available for hire and we currently hire space to a number of local dance schools, bands and drama groups throughout the evenings and weekends.

The Fairtrade Café is a popular place to sit and chat or to become part of one of our regular community groups including our Book Club, Knit and Natter, Wave Film Society and elders groups.

Our aim is to provide high quality workshops and classes at affordable rates for anyone aged between 4 and 104.

The d.@rt centre is open from 4.30pm to 9.30pm daily and from Saturday 8.30am to 4.30pm.
