​What can you do at a Regional Arts Centre?

If you enjoy music, drama or dance, Regional music and performing arts centres are the place to be. We have everything from recorders to pop and jazz bands, choirs and orchestras, drama and dance - something for everyone.

Our centres are open most weeks during term time - please check out the current list of dates below:

Everyone is welcome to come and look around on any week that the centres are open for a free 'taster' session, and to check out the detailed timetable. If you are currently learning to play an instrument, please bring it along with you.

How much does it cost?

Please see the fees and subscriptions page for details of how much, when and how to pay.

Help us reduce costs by paying online through the Parent Pay shop and please consider Gift Aiding your membership subscription so that we can avoid raising subscription rates more than necessary.
