Welcome to
The Elgiva

At the heart of the arts in the Chilterns, we’re proud to spotlight a wide range of shows, films, comedians, musicians and dancers, produce a professional family pantomime and showcase the very best of local talent.

From our 300-seat auditorium to our exhibition space, and from community workshops to our well-stocked bar and café, you’ll always find a warm welcome at The Elgiva.

Our staff and volunteers are passionate about the performing arts, our equipment is high spec and our space is vibrant, dynamic and flexible, whether you want to hire, perform or visit.

Elgiva for Everyone runs through everything we do, so dive into our website – and experience The Elgiva!

Elgiva for YOU

Community is a cornerstone in developing our ethos of Elgiva for everyone. We seek to raise awareness and participation in the creative arts, to foster partnerships with local communities, schools and organisations and to be as inclusive as possible.

We want to challenge you, delight you, entertain you and welcome you. The Elgiva is for everyone, and that means you!
