Parabola Arts Centre

Parabola Road, Cheltenham GL50 3AA

  •  Opened in 2009 by Sir Richard Eyre, The Parabola Arts Centre is owned by The Cheltenham Ladies’ College and is used by the school for performances, exhibitions and events. In 2011 PAC launched as a public arts centre with a program focused on innovative work that stretches the definitions of theatre, music and dance, encouraging people to look at the world differently. PAC also invites artists for residencies.
