Parabola Arts Centre

Get In Touch 

Built with minimalist contemporary detail, the state-of-the-art theatre has a capacity of 311 (+wheelchair spaces) across two levels, meaning the Parabola Arts Centre is wonderfully proportioned, resonant and atmospheric for your audience.

This is a brilliant space for your next live performance, conference, festival or presentation. Not to mention that being situated in the centre of Cheltenham, means there are easy to access transport links for your guests to reach the Grade II* listed building.   

If you are in need of rehearsal and/or extra spaces, the Parabola Arts Centre has a variety of rooms available for use including five breakout rooms, a dance studio, 3 dressing rooms and a foyer space which houses the box office and bar whilst also doubling as an art gallery.
