About The Point
Based in the centre of Eastleigh, The Point is a regional powerhouse for contemporary dance, aerial and circus, theatre and combined arts.
We specialise in programming risk-taking contemporary performance. Our programme of professional dance, theatre, comedy and film attracts the very best British and international artists to the region.
The Point opened in 1996, with its state-of-the-art Creation Space opening in 2009. Owned and managed by Eastleigh Borough Council, The Point became one of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio Organisations in April 2015.
Placing audiences at the heart of everything we do, our work enriches lives through inspirational experiences created to move you physically and emotionally.
We run a number of classes, workshops and opportunities to help improve health and wellbeing, from Dance with Parkinson's to Steady & Strong, a strand of inclusive classes to hosting Eastleigh's weekly Community Cafe, our community is the heartbeat of our building.
Engaging thousands of participants each year, we develop talent, raise aspirations and inspire the next generation; developing Eastleigh as a creative community.
Through creative residencies in our world-class Creation Space and through our trail-blazing Associate Artist programme, we support artists to develop new work and reach new audiences.
