artist led creative space
For artists looking for a large space full of warmth and character, The Church is an ideal place to write, devise, rehearse and generally be creative in.
It can also be used for exhibitions or installations and works wonderfully as an intimate performance space.
15 x 5 meter suspended redwood floor, 8 meter high ceiling, natural light, wood burning stove, shelves of books and curios, painting easel, music and conductor stands, writing desk, 2 sewing machines, games and diversions, props, tricks, instruments and bric-a-brac,
wi-fi, hi-fi, a sound studio, various kinds of lighting (including basic theatrical lights), flat screen TV and DVD player. A small PA is also available on request.
As artists ourselves, we would be delighted to discuss your project and find out how we can work with you. Please contact us.
BOOKING THE CHURCH
All bookings are unique: the prices here are a guide only. Please contact us to discuss your requirements and request a quote.

Accommodation for artists hiring the Church from £30 per person per night (we have two double rooms)

All bookings include plenty of tea and coffee.
For your convenience we book by the day. A day usually starts around 9AM and finishes when the day’s work is done or everyone is tired/has cabin fever. Please remember St. Mary's is also our family home, so we stop the loud noises by 7PM.
The number of artists the space will accommodate depends on use/equipment/etc
eg 30-50 living statues; 20 tai chi mediators; 10 performance artists; 8 acrobats; 6 contemporary dancers; 2 action painters; solo puppeteer plus 120 medium puppets.
We’re very flexible and will do our best to accommodate your needs, no matter how unusual. We are always happy to discuss your project and find the best way to make it happen based on your requirements and budget.
