Our Bailrigg campus is open to all, and members of the local community are welcome to use and enjoy many of our facilities and events.
Art and culture on campus
The Bailrigg campus is home to Lancaster Arts, bringing together our own theatre, art gallery and concert series. The Nuffield Theatre is one of the largest professional studio theatres in Europe. It hosts public performances of theatre, contemporary dance and live art from some of the best-known and respected companies from the UK and abroad. The Peter Scott Gallery is a small gem of a contemporary art gallery, open to the public free of charge. The gallery is also home to the University's international art collection, that includes Japanese and Chinese art, antiquities, works by twentieth-century British artists and prints by significant European names such as Dürer, Miró, Ernst and Vasarely.
The Ruskin is home to the leading collection of the works of John Ruskin (1819-1900), the epoch-defining writer, artist and social thinker.
