Our Artistic Policy
We believe that artistic experience can change lives. It provides a space in which we can see, listen, engage and understand. It also gives us the joy of sheer entertainment! Through this experience our lives are immeasurably enriched. We believe that our relationship with our audiences and participants starts at the youngest of ages and should be a relationship for life.
Our vision is the creation of a vibrant cultural destination venue, open all day through to evening, offering a variety of different activities; a busy building showing films, delivering workshops, offering food and drink right through the day; available for meeting hire, conferences, wi-fi enabled, and a place to meet and converse for coffees and lunches.
Our Beliefs And Values
Welcoming audiences and participants of all ages from across Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire and beyond, we believe in an arts centre that is accessible to all. We value diverse creative experiences that are enjoyed in an atmosphere that is welcoming and supportive. We are particularly renowned for our friendly and open approach from our staff and volunteers
