The Axis Arts Centre (Formally known as Alsager Arts Centre) has an acclaimed public programme of touring new performance and visual art work presented in two intensive seasons – September to November and January to March. The core of the work is currently programmed into the Theatre, Studio’s or the Gallery spaces in the Arts Building on the Crewe Campus of MMU Cheshire. The centre is regularly funded by Arts Council England and Manchester Metropolitan University.

Axis Arts Centre aims to promote the best emergent, national and international small-scale touring contemporary theatre, live art, contemporary dance, performance writing, new music and installation. It developed as a public facility out of the ‘Cultural Policy’ of the old Crewe and Alsager College of Higher Education, in the early eighties. Over the years it has presented some of the biggest names in contemporary performance of all kinds, from Forced Entertainment to Benjamin Zephaniah, Yolande Snaith to Goat Island, Scanner to Frantic Assembly, Bobby Baker to Odin Teatret.
