  • We are displaying a small selection of Snowdrops artwork in the Gallery windows.   We hope this may brighten your day as you pass by, or even inspire you for next year! We will reopen the Gallery as soon as we are able but in the meantime keep watching the windows. There will be changing displays of artworks from the planned exhibitions whilst we are closed.
  • The six month extension applied to all memberships last September will soon begin ending, and we will start sending out renewal letters. With nothing on at the Arts Centre until it is safe for us to reopen, we will quite understand if you do not wish to rejoin immediately. However, although reduced, our overheads do not go away and with little or no income at the moment we are still faced with depleting our funds to pay our bills, albeit that these have been helped by a couple of government grants. If you are able to renew and help secure the future of the Centre and the Arts in Shaftesbury, it would be very much appreciated. You can renew online here.
  • Apart from becoming/continuing to be a member, you can also support the Centre by making a donation. Click here to donate.
