Arts and entertainment
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.
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.
