Netherton Arts Centre - NAC

Netherton Arts Centre (NAC) is located in Netherton, Dudley, and operated by Dudley Performing Arts. 

As well as being home to Dudley Performing Arts, the centre has a fabulous theatre space which is used to stage many DPA performances. A variety of local and regional amateur and professional organisations also bring their talents to NAC for us all to enjoy.

The Victorian building has a 322 seat theatre with a comprehensive lighting and sound setup.

We operate on a 'hall for hire' basis. The theatre is available to hire for rehearsals and performances by professional and amateur drama, dance and music groups.

The centre also has other rooms and spaces which can be hired for conferences, meetings, exhibitions and events.

NAC is an accredited training centre for OCR, AQA and music examinations.

The centre is a ME2 inclusive venue and is fully accessible by wheelchair users.
