Welcome to The Art House in Southampton

The Art House is a performance venue and social centre in the heart of Southampton, offering live music, performance poetry, storytelling and comedy as well as workshops and classes, drop-in community cafe events, a regular community pantry and a meeting space for groups.

We are currently asking our community to help us reach 300 supporters on Patreon to make our community pantry sustainable long term. Click here to find out more.

Visit community pantry to collect pay-as-you-feel groceries, chilled meals, warm clothes and toiletries all by donation, to help folks during pandemic times. We are also open for takeaway hot drinks and vegan cakes during these times and run regular community cafe events where you can enjoy tasty vegan food on a pay-as-you-feel basis.

You can support our community pantry by paying forward hot drinks, groceries and meals.

Our Community Pantry and Cafe is supported by the National Lottery Community Fund
