The Courtyard Centre for the Arts


The Courtyard is Herefordshire's Centre for the Arts, promoting creativity as an important element in the lives of the whole community. The Courtyard is committed to delivering excellence and providing the very best opportunities for everyone to engage with the arts.  We believe that as far as it is economically possible, the rural communities and audiences of the area have equal right to access and experience the very best artistic performances and presentations that are commonly available in areas of greater population density.   

We wish to inspire creativity amongst individuals, community groups and the professional artists and companies of Herefordshire and the surrounding region. We believe in building effective collaborations and partnerships with individuals, organisations, agencies and stakeholders in order to achieve shared goals. We believe the arts should fundamentally be enjoyable, memorable and enrich people’s lives.
