The Arts Centre boasts a state of the art 200-seater auditorium with full stage lighting which hosts music concerts, plays, dance performances and lots more throughout the year.
Ballina Arts Centre presents a wide variety of theatre, dance, music and film with a varied monthly programme. Theatre presentations range from touring/professional work to local, non-professional productions.
The Centre is access-driven and participatory in ethos. Since its inception, it has developed and maintained strong links with a number of local community groups.
