Welcome to the new Attenborough Arts Centre shop!

We’re proud to showcase the work of many local artists and makers, complimented by a selection of some of the best crafts and design-led products from across the UK.
Our collection changes weekly, including lots of seasonal goodies, with something to suit all budgets. We also have a range of Attenborough Arts Centre souvenirs and a great collection of unusual and locally designed greetings cards. So whether you’re looking for something beautiful for your own home, a gift, or simply an emergency card for that birthday you forgot, pop in and have a browse!
All proceeds from sales in the shop are reinvested directly back into Attenborough Arts Centre, helping to sustain access to high quality arts for all.

Open daily alongside the newly-refurbished Attenborough cafe in the foyer.
Monday - Friday 9.30am - 7pm, Saturdays 10am - 5pm and Sundays 12noon - 4pm
Occasionally open longer during evening performances and special events, and closed during University holidays at Christmas, Easter, and bank holidays.
