Beacon Arts Centre

Beacon Arts Centre launched in 2013 out of the long-standing Greenock Arts Guild which was established in 1945. The Beacon is located in Greenock on the banks for the Clyde with spectacular views over the hills of Argyll and Bute and is Inverclyde’s prime provider of arts and creative learning.

The Beacon stages a vast array of performances from award-winning national companies like Scottish Opera and National Theatre of Scotland to large scale community musicals and amateur theatre. There’s also a year round exhibition programme and range of courses and classes for all ages and all abilities including Beacon Youth Theatre and a contemporary dance programme.

With a 4-star tourism rating, Beacon Arts Centre has a great selection of meeting and conference spaces. The in-house Bar + Kitchen offers light breakfasts and lunches through to a pre-theatre menu.

“With beautiful scenic views and incredible sunsets, the Beacon Arts Centre lends itself to the land of theatre and the arts. It is spacious, comfortable and the facilities are enjoyed by many people from miles around. Staff are helpful and friendly, making your visit there a pleasurable one. The theatre and arts programme is varied and well worth supporting”

Sit back and enjoy our spectacular views over the Firth of Clyde.
We serve morning coffee, scones and pastries and afternoon tea, cake and tray bakes.
You can also order a light lunch – homemade soup, sandwiches and baked potatoes.
