Performing Arts Centre
The Performing Arts Centre (PAC) is situated behind the original stable block at the Abbey.
It stands independently, separate from the main building, and boasts a range of impressive features that make it an ideal venue for various events. As you enter the PAC, you’ll notice a small kitchen area and green room, which provides a convenient space for performers and staff to prepare refreshments. One of the standout features of the PAC is its flexible layout. This includes a retractable partition that allows the hirer to adjust the space according to their needs.
At the close of 2015, Battle Abbey School purchased the Yesterday’s World museum, situated on Battle High Street across from the Abbey Gatehouse.
