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 up on the gallery.

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 a beautiful venue for weddings including elopement and smaller wedding ceremonies. It is also ideal for a variety of community or corporate events, exhibitions, conferences and private parties.

Funding news

Thanks to the funding received from the government’s #CulturalRecoveryFund, the works to install the live-streaming equipment are nearly complete as are those to create the Business Hub down stairs in The Kelly Room.

Once we can open again, for those who are working from home, the Business Hub will be available to spend a 'Desk Day' in comfortable co-working surroundings at Calstock Arts. We have been busy transforming the Kelly Room into a practical workspace, designed to provide extra space, comfortable chairs and company.

Email hire@calstockarts.org to find out more!

The government’s #CulturalRecoveryFund means we can continue to be here for you #HereForCulture.
