Welcome to The Beacon Wantage, Oxfordshire illuminating the local community

The Beacon is illuminating Wantage through the culture, leisure and entertainment.

As a vibrant gathering place for the local community (named after the historic beacons along the town’s ancient Ridgeway) we offer a varied programme of live events from cinema, music, theatre and comedy to a regular activity timetable of classes and workshops.

Unfortunately due to events and bank holidays there will be no Monkey Mayhem on Friday 16 March, Friday 23 March, Friday 30 March and Monday 2 April.

Our pre-school stay and play soft play sessions will be back to normal, every Monday and Friday at 9.30am - 11.30am from Friday 6 April.
