Richard Attenborough Centre

  • About
    With its 180-seater performance space, art studios, extensive exhibition gallery and bright foyer space, The Richard Attenborough Centre is the place for arts, education and disability. As the University of Leicester's arts centre, the RACentre aims to offer opportunities to participate without barriers in ways that challenge and inspire. People can engage with the arts as audiences, performers and learners.

    We also manage the University's support for students through the music scholarship scheme and student music groups, as well as working with a range of local amateur performers.

    Long active in arts and disability, Lord Attenborough was fundamental to the creation of the RACentre and continues to be an immense supporter, closely involved with its activities.

    The University was delighted when he graciously agreed to the RACentre being named after him in recognition of his support and his family links to the University (his father was principal of its college precursor from 1932 to 1951). The Richard Attenborough Centre was opened on 27 May 1997 by Diana, Princess of Wales.
