Our town has a fantastic tradition for encouraging music across the community as demonstrated by business and audience involvement in the successful Valley Music
Festival. To further support and develop our young musicians and performers it is now clear that the town needs a technically advanced and versatile performing arts space with the flexibility to attract theatre style audiences of 300+ available for concerts, gigs, festivals, dance groups and theatre productions. This would also include teaching rooms, rehearsal space, and recording studios, for performers, teachers, sole traders, bands, choirs and dance and drama groups.
The facility would also include a café, meeting rooms and visual art galleries thus creating a social and community arts hub preferably managed by a charitable trust.
The current facility at The Venue would clearly be a suitable location with sufficient investment, refurbishment and a creative reimagining of its purpose, ethos and management structure.
