Just a short car or train ride from Birmingham, Warwick Arts Centre has a fantastic array of events and performances. It is the largest arts venue of its kind outside of London and is host to theatre, dance, film, comedy, and concerts with a line up that is usually unsurpassed in the Midlands. It is also home to The Mead Gallery featuring some outstanding exhibitions of art and photography. There are two bars and a fine restaurant, as well as Sozo, a creative gift shop. Look out also for the amazing four-piece clock on the wall as you go in.
