Venue description:Chapel Arts Centre, formerly known variously as The Central Club, then Window Arts Centre and more recently, Invention Studios, re-opened over eight years ago with a lot more than a new name. It is now firmly established as Bath’s alternative arts venue and we present an eclectic array of events as you will see. The well kitted out venue holds 200 people standing, 150 seated theatre style and 105 seated at cabaret style tables. We have a superb, solid and smooth oak wood floor, a state-of-the-art lighting system and truss, and the fantastic natural acoustic of the room (best in Bath!) which is augmented by an excellent sound system with a professional 28:8:2 channel Soundcraft mixing desk with more outboard than you could shake a stick at.
There is now a permanent and well stocked bar with many local and organic drinks and a choice of excellent wines, and the Chapel Arts Cafe area downstairs has been fully refurbished and serves tasty and wholesome vegetarian designer flatbreads, a range of platters, plus excellent & mouth-watering home-made cakes and desserts, many of which are gluten free! The Cafe is managed by Mark & Lily Heather – telephone: 01225 920256. The Cafe is available for private hire and Art Exhibitions. Take-away and Catering available.
We operate as a community arts centre, serving all of the various residents and visitors in Bath and its environs. We have taken as our remit the function of presenting as wide a range of the performing arts as possible, including music of all kinds (except the very loud!), theatre, dance, comedy, film, mime, poetry and multimedia combinations of all the above and more. We are able to offer workshops and provide a space for rehearsals and learning experiences of all kinds.
