Established in 1989, Droichead Arts Centre is a multi-disciplinary centre in the heart of Drogheda Town, providing an extensive curated arts and cultural programme of theatre, music, film, visual arts, opera, dance, comedy, literature, family/children, outreach. The Centre is housed over two buildings: Stockwell Street, which hosts a modern 169-seater theatre and a bright contemporary visual arts gallery, and Barlow House, an 18th century Georgian style townhouse.
Our purpose is to put art at the heart of people’s lives and ambitions in Drogheda, East Meath and Louth. Our vision is where art matters & is easily, enjoyably, meaningfully part of everyone’s everyday life. Our mission is to be a creative hub, nurturing, presenting and promoting art of, by & for the many, diverse communities of Drogheda, East Meath and Louth. Droichead actively supports artists and arts organisations, through residencies, bursaries and other bespoke supports. This is at the heart of who we are and what we do. It’s why we exist.
