“Having an increase in visitors during challenging economic times is fantastic. The Island is awash with talented creative people who appreciate the ethos of what we do at Quay Arts, which is allowing us to buck national trends of declining numbers.

“I would like to thank our loyal customers and first time visitors for supporting their local arts charity. We are proud of what our excellent team do and how we do it. We look forward to continuing with our new spring season of live music, theatre, comedy, cinema, visual arts, children’s programmes and classes and workshops.”

Quay Arts experienced a 6,000 visit increase in 2013 compared to 2012 with 90,000 visits.
