A contemporary arts centre with an international reputation for visual arts, Arnolfini also houses a multi-purpose 200 seat theatre/auditorium, a busy community and education programme, a successful specialist independent bookshop, thriving café bar (operated by Bristol Beer Factory) and a range of studio and office spaces.
