Westbury Arts Centre, located on Milton Keynes’ west flank, by Shenley Wood, has been home to artists since the 1980s and a charity since 2013. Based in a Grade II listed building - a former 17th-Century moated manor house - we offer 19 studios for permanent and temporary rent and also can provide a number of public rooms and exhibition spaces at affordable rates.

Westbury offers a creative setting in a beautiful leafy location, for a wide range of events including workshops, courses, meetings, corporate training days, and evening band rehearsal space. If you would like to run a workshop or host an exhibition at Westbury Arts Centre, please get in touch with us and we will be able to discuss all available options with you. 

As a registered charity, all income generated from venue hire directly supports our mission of providing creative experiences to local community through our workshops, courses and events.
