For a number of years, the town of Truro lacked an arts and cultural centre to host various live performances and arts education programs. When the former Centennial Theatre, located in the heart of Truro, became available a plan to purchase and develop the facility into that long-awaited venue was created. That plan resulted in the money for both the purchase and the renovation of the facility being raised through a Community Economic Development Investment Funds cooperative venture.
The Centre houses a 208-seat theatre, a small art gallery, a workshop space for arts education programming, a sports heritage hall, a boardroom, a concession area, and offices. With the strong support of the community and various organizations, the Marigold Cultural Centre provides a variety of cultural programming to a large number of Truro-area residents, while also providing a major downtown focus for economic development.
The Box Office is also open for 90 minutes before showtime.
