The Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre is a multipurpose space that provides arts activities for the whole community and those visiting the area.
Completed in 2000 through a £1 million donation from the Tacchi-Morris Trust, together with a £2.1 million grant from National Lottery Funds, the Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre holds state-of-the-art facilities and aims to inspire all the community to get involved in the arts, be it coming to watch a show - or taking part yourself!
As well as a busy programme of theatre, dance and music, the Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre runs a range of community classes open to all the family and hosts approximately eight visual art exhibitions annually in the foyer gallery space.
We believe involvement in the arts is not only a great way to have fun and breed creativity but also a means for exploring what it means to be human. Our work as part of Heathfield Community School and The SPACE (as well as with other local secondary and primary schools and colleges) and with the wider community has shown us the value of the arts in developing skills and raising attainment, in challenging ideas and the world around us, in improving health and well-being and in building confidence and self-esteem.
The Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre was developed through support from Kathleen Tacchi-Morris and continued support from the Tacchi-Morris Trust and Heathfield Community School. Core th the centre's existence is continuing the legacy of pacifism that echoed throughout Kathleen.
