Weddings & Celebrations


Quay Arts is a Grade II listed Victorian building that combines historic charm with a contemporary feel to provide you with a practical and alternative celebration venue.  Our Café Bar and riverside terrace can be adapted and decorated to suit your specific requirements.

As an arts venue in the heart of Newport, we pride ourselves on providing an outlet for creativity and we welcome you to have “your day, your way”. We are fully licensed for weddings and civil partnership ceremonies and in the past we have hosted a range of innovative receptions, celebrant ceremonies, civil partnerships and private parties with a variety of themes.

Catering for private functions

Our friendly front of house team will be here to serve you throughout the day and our chef can provide you with key locally delicious sourced food. Our menu is flexible to your needs and we are happy to provide the following catering arrangements:

  • Formal sit down menu
  • Hot and cold buffets
  • Informal meals for example:  pizzas, hot dogs and fajitas

Even a little money can make a big difference at Quay Arts

Did you realise that when you buy a cup of freshly ground barista coffee in our Café Bar, you are helping to support the cultural life of the Isle of Wight?

However, the generosity of our supporters goes beyond sales of food, drink and theatre tickets. Gifts of money, time, and even specific items make a huge difference to the amount of work we can do. Together, we can continue to enrich the lives of islanders and visitors with our fantastic programme of events.
