ARNOLFINI, Bristol's contemporary arts centre has received Visitor Attraction Quality Assured Status from Enjoy England.
This means that the venue can now use the coveted rose quality mark giving visitors a clear indication of high standards across all areas of the visitor experience, including customer service, cleanliness, ambience, hospitality and food.
Director Tom Trevor said: "This is great news for Arnolfini and really demonstrates the hard work that the team have put into welcoming visitors and to running the building effectively. It also shows how successful the refurbishment of the building has been in improving people's experience of the arts as well as our facilities."
The centre recently underwent a two year refurbishment project to improve access and upgrade facilities.
Since its reopening in September 2005, over three quarters of a million visitors have experienced the centre's range of contemporary art exhibitions, live art, dance, film, lectures and events.
