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 plaform 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 spaces for hire, including a meeting room and large events room.
