Isle of Wight Hidden Heroes

The Quay Arts Centre is situated in a converted 19th-Century brewery warehouse complex at the head of the River Medina in the centre of Newport.

Quay Arts is one of the most exciting and widely supported arts centres in the south of England.

Whether you are just visiting the Isle of Wight or live here all year round, there is plenty of things to do, see and hear at the Quay Arts. Great fun for kids and adults alike. Check out our fantastic programme of music, visual arts, film, comedy, family events, workshops and courses.

Come along to the free concerts, free art exhibitions, and enjoy world-class entertainment in some of the best live venues on the south coast of England.

Two galleries give you the chance to discover the diversity of Island talent and established international artists on show at Quay Arts. On the first floor, the Clayden Gallery is an excellent space to see and buy work from local artists as well as work by schools, colleges and collectives.

Major exhibitions are held in the West Gallery. This spectacular space never fails to delight, challenge and surprise. Recent shows include Turner Prize winner Martin Creed and artists in residence at Jubilee Stores.

The award-winning Café Bar at Quay Arts is one of the best places to eat on the Island. Come and explore our wide selection of daily specials, freshly prepared in our kitchen, using locally sourced seasonal produce.

Our menu includes vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free dishes that will excite your taste buds and give you ideas to try at home. You will also find the yummiest cakes and some of the best tea and coffee you’ve ever tasted. In a welcoming environment with free Wifi, a book exchange in the corner and art on the walls.
