About Us

Ashford Arts Centre

The Centre for the Creative and Performing Arts is located just off the High Street, nestled in the Creative Quarter, facing Park Mall, where a host of eclectic artisans are based. Our front door also faces the lifts of Edinburgh multi-story carpark. When you exit the lifts, look to your right and that's where you'll find us.  Our address is 5-7 Park Street, Ashford, Kent TN24 8LR.
