Our aim is to provide opportunities for people to participate in the arts and we run a full programme of events which includes live music, poetry, a programme of workshops and classes as well as a programme of participatory arts projects. Aiming to improve the quality of life for everyone, the Centre is open to anyone to get involved in the arts and we are working to expand towards greater participation and inclusivity wherever we can. We remain independent, run by local people, putting on ground level events which are not catered for elsewhere in the town.
