Welcome to The Bureau

The Bureau is a vibrant artist led arts centre in the heart of Blackburn, providing versatile space for arts activities, theatre, music, cultural events and community participation.

The Bureau Centre for the Arts, June 2021

Like most arts venues, we have been closed to the public for the majority of the past 16 months, and as we begin to reopen to hold events, workshops and performances, we want to reassure you that your safety and the safety of our team and volunteers is of paramount importance and is built in to our reopening plan.

We will continue to offer some perfomances and activities online, make use of our new garden space and operate at a reduced capacity for indoor workshops and performances.

Our team take regular lateral flow tests and we encourage you to do the same before visiting The Bureau so we can help keep each other safe.

You will find hand sanitisers around the building and we encourage visitors to wear masks on arrival and when moving around the building.

We will continue to follow guidance and update our procedures if that changes.
