The Art Bank is a creative hub, art gallery and community music venue with a licensed café/bar. Our vision is to increase creative opportunities in Shepton Mallet and surrounding areas.

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.

Cafe & Bar

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

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 vegan food.
