About Beacon Arts Centre

The Beacon, opened January 2013, at Customhouse Quay in Greenock and overlooks the River Clyde estuary towards the hills of Argyll and Dunbartonshire. There can be few theatres in the country which will enjoy such a spectacular location.

The Beacon has 2 performing spaces, together with a Bistro/Bar and 3 large rehearsal rooms which can be extended to provide a function suite for up to 170 guests. The new building will use cutting-edge theatre technology as well as providing wi-fi, online bookings and infrastructure for live television broadcasts.

The main stage of the Beacon is one of the largest in Scotland. It comes fully equipped including a full height fly tower with counterweight system, two trap doors, retractable orchestra pit and generous wing space. The theatre can accommodate over 500 patrons on three levels.

Our studio theatre seats 130 people on retractable bleacher seating and is adaptable as a black box space, which can be used end stage, in the round, cabaret etc.

The Beacon is a significant new addition to the Scottish theatre and arts scene and a venue of choice for touring productions as well as being a vibrant hub for local community groups.
