The Tower Arts Centre, Winchester
Built in 1898, The Tower Arts Centre was originally a Water Tower serving Winchester, until, in 1955 the Reservoir proved inadequate to the City's needs and became surplus to requirements. The Centre was eventually opened in 1969 as a Drama Centre with toilets, workshop space, coffee bar, changing rooms and a gallery area.
As the Centre became more established it ventured into other art forms and began to provide activities for adults, bringing in professional Theatre companies on occasion to perform for drama groups and the general public.
