Arts & Entertainment in Hampshire

From reggae to Rachmaninov, Bollywood to Hollywood, you're never far from quality arts and entertainment in Hampshire.

Hampshire has galleries both large and small, from the prestigious Southampton City Gallery, with its fine collections of 20th century British art, to ArtSway in the New Forest, with exhibitions of contemporary visual arts.

Our thriving arts centres offer world class dance, theatre, music and children's performances and also run activities such as salsa dancing, mask making and drama.

Sir Harold Hillier Gardens near Romsey holds a popular Art in the Garden event every summer, where outdoor art for sale is placed around the grounds, sometimes in unexpected places!

Theatregoers can enjoy fantastic performances at Hampshire's top theatres including The Mayflower in Southampton, Kings Theatre in Portsmouth and Theatre Royal in Winchester to name a few.

Entertainment is brought into local communities through the excellent Hog the Limelight programme, organising high quality productions, workshops, cabaret and music in village halls and art centres across the county.

Lovers of live music are spoilt for choice, from rock and pop concerts at Southampton Guildhall, Portsmouth Guildhall and the West End Centre in Aldershot to classical music, jazz and folk at the Turner Sims Concert Hall and The Anvil in Basingstoke.

Visitors to Winchester can follow a walking tour around the historic city using the excellent 'Eye-openers' guide and discover works by Elisabeth Frink, David Kemp and Antony Gormley among others.
