Calstock Arts is a community arts centre located in a beautifully converted Chapel on the banks of the River Tamar.

We programme a wide range of events including folk, jazz, classical music, comedy, film, theatre, talks and exhibitions. We have a fully licensed bar and pre-event food is now available for some events.

In addition to our ticketed events we also have Gallery Bar Specials. These feature live music and other events from well-known and emerging performers in the south west.

The Old Chapel is an ideal venue for a variety of community events, exhibitions, conferences, weddings and private parties.
