Cooke’s Studios is a media and arts centre in the heart of Barrow-in-Furness. The Grade II listed Victorian building runs over 5 floors and houses many of the town’s key creative organisations, providing a range of high quality digital media, theatre and dance participation opportunities to local residents.

It opened in 2011 following a £2 million refurbishment funded by the Community Assets Fund, Heritage Lottery Fund and Working Neighbourhoods Fund. The building is managed by not-for-profit company Creative Studios Cumbria in partnership with Barrow Borough Council.
