The centre incorporates a first floor art gallery, an auditorium with 150 retractable seats and full cinema facilities, three multi-purpose workshops, two dedicated digital media suites, two small music rehearsal rooms and two foyer galleries. An ongoing programme of local, national and international art exhibitions is presented throughout the year. Admission to exhibitions is free.
