The Art Bank is currently closed

Dear all, we feel it is the right decision to close the Art Bank for now, given the unpredictable and escalating nature of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We have cancelled all our events and workshops over the next few weeks and will keep the cafe, bar and workshops closed until things become clearer.

We are looking at ways to offer our workshops online; in the meantime we are still contactable if you need a chat or help with anything, such as food deliveries or other assistance:,, We can't wait to catch up with all you lovely people soon. Keep well. Lots of love, Dimitris, James and Lucy xxx

Please get in touch with us if you require assistance

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.

The Art Bank Cafe serves home-made vegan cakes, our signature plant-based brownies and freshly-ground Fairtrade coffee.
