Tucked away in the picturesque village of Rowsley on the edge of the Peak District, LEVEL is an award-winning contemporary arts centre that specialises in visual, digital and performing art. The centre was purpose-built in 2008 as an accessible creative space that's flooded with natural light. We're open year-round, with a packed programme of visual art exhibitions, interactive digital installations and creative events that are suitable for all ages. The exhibitions change every few months so there's always something different to come and see, and best of all, the exhibitions are free to visit!
