The Music Centre


Welcome to Music at Warwick


The Music Centre is in the heart of campus inside the Warwick Arts Centre

There's no music degree here at Warwick, and so everything we do here is for all students and staff to enjoy, no matter what their subject is! We've got societies from all musical genres, tuition is available and there are rooms for practice and performance. We are proud to be one of the most dynamic university music centres in the UK which doesn't actually run a music degree!


The Music Centre is located within Warwick Arts Centre, the largest venue of its kind in the UK outside the Barbican Centre in London. Our larger ensembles regularly perform in its 1500-seat Butterworth Hall, whilst our smaller groups make frequent use of the two Theatres, the Butterworth Hall, Helen Martin Studio and a dedicated Ensemble Room.

Upcoming concerts (updated termly)


Our performance diary has finished for this academic year but be sure to check back regularly for our next series of concerts starting in October 2019!

Summer vacation opening hours


Over the summer vacation the Music Centre's practice rooms will be open in line with Warwick Arts Centre opening times. This will vary day to day; the centre will usually close when the last show of the evening does.
