see website for details
Pocklington Arts Centre has gained a nation-wide reputation for its live-event and film programmes, in only a short period of time. The venue, which has a 200-seat auditorium and 70-seat studio/exhibition space, has provided film screenings, live music, theatre performances, comedy clubs, art exhibitions and conference facilities to ten of thousands of people since opening in 2000.
"Pocklington was a surprise package. 200 people, full to capacity, and the knowledge that it could have sold out twice over gave me a good feeling. I cannot remember having more fun in a performance in my whole career. Laugh? I nearly bought the place a round... Two, maybe even three shows next time at that very special venue. "
Steve Harley - Musician & BBC Radio Two presenter
"Pocklington - a city built on rock n roll..."

**local editor's review** We went to a Chris Smither gig at Pocklington Arts Centre a couple of years ago. I was pleasantly surprised by the venue, the sound, the atmosphere. It seems to be very well organised, and the sound was very good for the size of the venue. I've been meaning to try their "scream screen" for parents and babies for ages but now my DC are a bit big. Considering the relative scarcity of any Arts stuff in the E. Riding Pocklington Arts Centre should be Grade I listed!
