Squire Performing Arts Centre, 9 Arboretum Street, Nottingham, NG1 4JB

Squire Performing Arts Centre is a modern small-scale theatre in the heart of Nottingham city centre – a welcoming home to theatre, dance, music, comedy and much more. We are a unique venue with two distinct performance spaces – our Main House seating 260, and our intimate Weston Studio seating 74.

Since opening to the public in 2017, the centre has attracted a number of well-established local and national companies including Derby Theatre, New Perspectives Theatre Company, Dance4 and Feet off the Ground as well being host to comedian Scott Bennett and art historian and presenter Andrew Graham Dixon.

Based at Nottingham Girls’ High School the centre is named in honour of a former student Dame Rosemary Anne Squire, DBE, to reflect her support of the project, her association with the school and prominent position in British theatre.

Creative learning is at the heart of Squire Performing Arts Centre. As well as creating a broad events programme, they are committed to providing arts and performance education giving the opportunity to develop potential and boost engagement with the arts.
