There are loads of regular things happening weekly and monthly at the Arts Centre. These are mostly organised by whoever runs the session, and you need to book directly with them, or just turn up. Click on anything below for more info, and how to book.
These things do change from time to time so, while we try to keep all this up to date, it’s always good to check with the contact person for the activity for the latest, up-to-date information.
Some things take a break with the school holidays.
Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays .
Multiple classes per week, from gentle beginners to more experienced, plus meditation sessions open to all.

Led by award winning and experienced Community Musician David Faulkner. Make a big band. Make some music. And have some fun!
The first Monday of each month starting at 7.30pm. Each session will open with a short set from the house band before the jam starts. The house band will feature a different line up each month. Admission is £7 or £5 or £3 (or free if you really need it to be). This goes towards paying the professional musicians in the house band.
On the second Monday of each month , Basil Bunelik (accordion) and other members of the band Družba are the hosts for this session for instrumentalists who'd like to play music from this rich seam. Listeners and dancers are most welcome too – comfy chairs and sofas, and a bar with real ale, local beers and ciders and interesting non-alcoholic options awaits. Some songs might creep into the repertoire too – something for everyone! Admission free.

SRT Dance. Touch the essence. Feel the pulse. Embrace the dance.
Fernando writes: “We believe that everyone can dance tango, even with two left feet.
“The Argentine tango is a dance created by a connection with a partner and your shared connection with the music. Argentine tango is improvisational, a walk to the beat and while there are very few steps there are infinite ways of sharing those steps.
