What's on


Thanks everyone for your lovely messages asking when we will be reopening.. Your support means the world! We'd also like to thank Arts Council England and Somerset Skills and Learning for their help.

We'll be opening towards the end of August- we're currently working on our courtyard so there will be a lovely outdoor space! We've also enjoyed teaching almost 100 people on our online courses in the last few months and are planning new courses online and in the Art Bank itself starting in September.

We're planning events for when we reopen the cafe and bar..
watch this space! Keep safe and see you soon X


The Art Bank

Housed in a former high street bank and home to the Art Bank Cafe and Rubbish Art Project, it hosts workshops and exhibitions that repurpose items that might otherwise end up in landfill.

The Bank offers a friendly 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.

After hours it is a bar that hosts live music, open mics, spoken word, comedy, theatre and eclectic DJ sets in a beautiful, magical setting that is always evolving. We also host pop ups serving the best of vegetarian and vegan food.
