Our vision is to inspire and add to our understanding of today's world by connecting audiences and artists. Tramway is a space where you are welcomed to witness, engage, experience, participate, to be challenged and to learn...

Tramway 1
Tramway 1 is normally associated with large-scale performing arts projects. It is a flexible theatre space capable of meeting the needs of the most demanding projects and ambitious ideas through its ability to adapt and change from show to show.

Tramway 2
Tramway 2 is the principal exhibition space and one of the largest single galleries in Europe, approximately 1011 square metres in size. The original tramlines, steel pillars and the sheer scale of this space make it one of the most impressive visual arts spaces in Europe.

Tramway 3

It leads into the Café Bar and looks out onto The Hidden Gardens to the rear of the building.

Upstairs at Tramway
The upper level includes a flexible Studio space, with a seated capacity of approximately 80, which hosts our ongoing participation programme: Junction 25, Tramway Young Critics, and Parkour.
