The actacentre in Bedminster, Bristol provides the Company with a large rehearsal and performance space, an office base, meeting room, storage, and a workshop. Just over half of our programme is delivered from the actacentre, with other projects delivered at community venues across the City.

The actacentre was extended during summer 2015, and now boasts a theatre bar in the foyer, a studio space, and backstage facilities. The actacentre offers a hub for community theatre, locally, nationally and internationally. Most acta shows are presented at the actacentre, although many also go on to tour to other communities.
