The West End Centre has been the creative heart of Aldershot for 45 years. We host live performance from world-class touring musicians, contemporary theatre, and some of the biggest names in comedy whilst nurturing the grass-roots local music scene and supporting upcoming talent. Our classes, workshops and outreach projects offer new creative skills and experiences for anyone who’s keen to get involved.
The Summer Westival is the highlight of our year; a huge indoor festival bursting out of our Victorian building, including multiple stages, a beer tent and actual grass. For well over 10 years it has been a distillation of everything that makes the Westy award-winning, unique...and a bit silly.
This year, as it’s not possible to run Westival in the way we usually would, we’re bringing you the essence of our favourite festival online for one weekend in July. There’ll be all the best bits: great music, brilliant comedy, family activities and a sense of community, all for free. We will invite you to recreate the festival atmosphere at home, so we can still say it never rains on Westival.
