Colchester Arts Centre History
The Colchester Arts Centre is located in an old church with an interesting history. St Mary's at the Walls has a mix of 15th Century and Victorian architecture, with Roman tiles also visible in part of the building. The church was built next to the Roman Wall which encloses Colchester Town Centre, built after the Boudican revolt destroyed much of Roman Colchester.
With tales tying it to events during the Civil War and the Siege of Colchester, the church has survived the years and events of Colchester's tempestuous past. Today it is used to host the variety of artistic events happening at the Arts Centre.
The venue has a capacity of 300 seated or 400 standing.
