The Hat Factory is Luton Culture’s cutting edge arts centre, situated at the heart of the Cultural Quarter. It hosts a varied programme of live music, comedy, theatre, circus and dance from touring, internationally-acclaimed performers whilst additionally serving as a space for nurturing fresh talent through workshops and classes.

With innovation at the centre of The Hat Factory’s initiative, we pick quality contemporary performances to play once in our venue, and our programme offers the opportunity to tick off a range of cultural challenges. Tickets for events in our exciting programme can be purchased on our website.

Staff Training:

Although we do not offer staff training, we believe that the arts are the building blocks to happy, healthy communities and therefore offer workshops for children, often delivered by the cast of the show that the workshop relates to. These workshops give children an opportunity to properly engage with the key themes and ideas in the shows, ultimately leading to a better understanding of the ideas surrounding it.
