Quay Arts is the Isle of Wight’s leading art gallery and venue for live arts events. It is situated in a converted 19th-Century brewery warehouse complex at the head of the River Medina in the centre of Newport, Isle of Wight

Refurbished in 1997 by award winning architect Tony Fretton, our facilities include two galleries, a 134-seat theatre, a Crafts Council-listed gift shop and our popular Café Bar which has a reputation for serving some of the best home-cooked food on the Island. Business conferencing facilities are also available, and the Centre is licensed for weddings and civil partnerships.

The Centre’s gallery spaces and Café wall show a varied, engaging and regularly changing programme of visual arts sourced from artists on the Island, mainland and internationally.

The Minghella theatre at Quay Arts, (named after Island-born Oscar-winning director Anthony Minghella) is one of the best venues on the island to see live performances. An outstanding programme of events offers theatre, comedy, music, dance, children’s entertainment and literature. The popular Café Bar also doubles as a live venue where you can see established and emerging artists while enjoying a drink from our well-stocked bar.

Across the river from Quay Arts is Jubilee Stores, home to passionate, professional artists working in a range of media including jewellery, pottery, printmaking, textiles, sculpture and painting. Jubilee Stores also hosts many of the workshops and courses on offer at Quay Arts. It’s the ideal place to learn new skills, hone old ones and make new friendships with like-minded people.

Quay Arts is an independent registered charity, sponsored and managed by the Steve Ross Foundation for the Arts (Charity Reg. No. 272007).
