Space Studios

Space is the largest collection of high quality arts spaces available for hire in the South West – an internationally unrivalled facility.

“Our vision is to create a vibrant hub for the south west region and visiting national and international artists. A space where emerging talent can work alongside established artists at the top of their profession. A space in which we offer first class facilities for a range of art forms and which enables and encourages interdisciplinary collaboration. A space that enables the arts to connect with pressing issues of social justice and sustainability.”


Space includes 8 large performing arts studios, a large multipurpose makers’ studio/workshop space, a gallery and two smaller rehearsal studios/meeting rooms.

Live performances, film and sound recording can be accommodated – call us to discuss this further. Any requests for hires for public events will be considered.

Work with us

Dartington has an 80 year history of supporting artists from diverse backgrounds to produce work. Through Space we again open our facilities to a wide range of creative organisations and individual artists who wish to make new work.

We have already had a fantastic response from many organisations who would like to use Dartington as a base for their work in the South West, and we look forward to exploring the opportunities on offer with you.

If you would like to find out more about hiring Space, or would just like to discuss this exciting new venture further, we’d love to hear from you.
