Hire the Level Centre

LEVEL is one of Derbyshire’s best kept cultural secrets, tucked away in the village of Rowsley right opposite Peak Village, this award-winning building opened as a contemporary arts centre in 2008.

LEVEL is open year-round, with a packed programme of visual art exhibitions and digital installations, alongside artists residencies and creative workshops.

Designed to be accessible, light floods through the building’s 60 windows, making this a stunning creative space for visual, digital and performing arts. There’s a corridor Gallery Space that’s used for visual art exhibitions including a public open call each summer, a large Event Space, Digital Space, meeting room, kitchen and separate art block.

Alongside our impressive spaces, LEVEL is also home to an array of digital technology and equipment which may be available to hire depending on other projects.
