Valley Arts. Over Dundry Hill but not Far Away.

Valley Arts are a group of volunteers committed to bringing the performing arts to the Chew Valley and building them a home. We are interested in building an artistic community out here towards the Mendips. Travel to Bristol and Bath is hard and expensive, opportunities far away and inaccessible for many. We hope to develop audiences, artists and people’s health and well being for many years to come.

In the last year we have been putting on events – and they sell out. Shows for families, for children and for adults set in village halls, schools and businesses. Workshops and sing-alongs, comedy nights and ceilidhs. So far we have worked with Fine Chisel, Living Spit, Travelling Light, Dr Phil Hammond, Instant Wit and many more.

We have managed to sign up Michael Eavis, Sarah Mead of Yeo Valley and Dr Phil Hammond as our brilliant and inspiring patrons.

This is just to let you know what is happening out there beyond the A38 and A37. There will be loads more – our Autumn Festival is coming up in the next couple of months and will feature music, puppetry, a swing band and some rather dirty comedy.

We are looking to build our board of trustees over the next few months and welcome interested and interesting enquiries. We are also continuously fundraising (nothing new there) and looking for exciting work for our community. So find out more about what we are aiming for on www.valleyartscentre.co.uk or email info@valleyartscentre.co.uk.
