Designed by award winning architect David Adjaye, the Bernie Grant Arts Centre is a multipurpose centre for the arts, including a 270 seat theatre, 70 seat mezzanine performance space, studio/rehearsal space, café/bar, and the Cinema Hub which shows films every week from Thursday to Sunday. The Centre bears the name of Tottenham’s late legendary MP Bernie Grant (1944 - 2000), whose vision for a fairer Britain and a fairer world inspired the creation of this space as a tribute to his work.
