ACS: Arts Council of Surrey HQ

In 2010, the ACS, the City of Surrey and three levels of government changed Surrey Art history with the restoration of the old Firehall #10 in Newton. This state of the art restoration turned the old Firehall into the new HQ for the Arts Council of Surrey. Named the Newton Cultural Centre [NCC] it is a thriving cultural centre in the heart of Newton.

Artists can find our offices located on the ground floor of this amazing building and a staff or qualified individuals that can assist you in everything related to the Visual, Performing and Literary Arts. From our new home in Newton, the ACS offers greatly expanded services to it Individual, Associate, Group and Businesses members.

The NCC feature three space opportunities: A Theatre, an Exhibition Gallery and Meeting Rooms. All bookings for the NCC are to be made through the ACS. The ACS is responsible for the operation and administration of this facility.
