Valley Arts is a charity established in 2015 to make a home for the arts and to make the Performing Arts more accessible to everyone in the Chew Valley and surrounding areas.

The events of 2020 dramatically changed how people can meet and enjoy one another’s company. So we want to hear your views, to help us adapt, and provide the best entertainment and resources for our community.

When answering the questions, please think about them from a post-pandemic ‘closer to normal’ point of view. Your answers will shape our future!  Thank you.
