The Market Place

Theatre and arts centre with something for everyone

The Market Place Theatre and Arts Centre is a state of the art cultural and conference facility in the heart of the historic city of Armagh.

With an all year round programme, the centre presents the best in arts performances, activities, and entertainment with something to suit everyone's taste.

From top quality drama to comedy nights, from children's shows to variety entertainment, visitors are spoilt for choice. And it's not just about the shows on stage. In-house bar facilities offer late night entertainment on Friday and Saturday evenings.

The centre also offers conference facility catering for groups of up to 400 people, visual art exhibitions all year round, and classes and workshops in everything from set dancing to youth theatre.

The centre was nominated for the Stirling Prize and won a high commendation from the British Construction Industry Awards. The Concrete Society awarded the building a certificate of excellence, describing the centre ‘as being made from polished concrete, specially fabricated to reflect the characteristic limestone. Extensive research and rigorous use of prototypes resulted in a building that does not merely use concrete within its structure, but challenges the boundaries and possibilities of concrete construction’.
