We'd like to thank every business, artist, performer, writer, musician and organisation that took part in Shepton on Show 2020!

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.
