ARC has now closed for the festive season. We want to take a moment to thank you all for the incredible support you've shown during this difficult year.
The events of 2020 have meant that we've faced various restrictions around what we do. But we continued to work with our community. And we kept finding ways everyone could still enjoy arts and culture.
We've adapted to the changing situation, and you've helped us to make it a success.
You created an exhibition to remind us we're all connected. You attended classes, and screenings, and a live event or two. You popped in for a coffee and sandwich, or even to say hello and ask how we were. You joined us online, to learn ukulele, to keep active, to create art, and to enjoy live performances.
You supported us with kind words, and donations. In a difficult year you helped to remind us why we do what we do, so from the entire ARC team, thank you.
We're off to take a short break now, but we can't wait to be back in 2021 and to welcome you all back again.
We know it will take some time, and we don't know exactly when we'll get there. But eventually we'll reopen our doors. And our usual programme of events will return, and we'll all be able to come together again like we used to.
In the meantime we want to wish you the best for the festive season, and for the New Year.
Our building will close from 3pm today (Saturday 19 December). Our phone lines will also close but you can email [email protected]
We'll respond to any emails we receive while we're closed once we return in January.
On Monday 4 January our Box Office lines will reopen, and our online classes will resume. However our building will remain closed. We are currently planning to reopen our building from Monday 11 January. This is dependent on local restrictions in place at the time.
Updates will be posted via our website and social media channels as we confirm details.
