What's on


A freak storm has marooned Dorothy in the Land of Woz. She must journey along the Yellow Brick Road to reach the Memory Board City, where it is said the Wizard can make anything that ‘WOZ’ disappear. Along the way Dorothy will meet new friends and navigate a field of poisonous poppies, lions, tigers and bears (oh my) while avoiding the clutches of the Wicked Witch. But is it possible for anything that 'WOZ' to really disappear... or is it all just hot air for the waiting balloon?


The Art Bank

Housed in a former high street bank and home to the Art Bank Cafe and Rubbish Art Project. We are a creative platform for the town of Shepton Mallet and surrounding villages, offering opportunities to support creative wellbeing.

The Bank offers a friendly, nurturing and inclusive space where people can get together, talk and collaborate. It also offers a large events room for hire.
