Creating a home for the arts in the Chew Valley


Valley Arts’ vision is to create a purpose-built, versatile performing arts centre, bringing local and professional performers together with enthusiastic local audiences. The new centre will have a multi-purpose 250-seater auditorium, rehearsal rooms, dance studio, café / bar and flexible exhibition space. Currently we are in the planning and consultation phase of this exciting project and are funding this via our various fund raising activities. Read more...
