Arts alive in Weston

Artistic events and workshops are on the menu in Weston-super-Mare thanks to a new community arts studio opening in the High Street.

Socially-engaged arts organisation Terrestrial has opened up in the unit previously held by Saltrock – and is now known as Weston Artspace.

It is open to local people who want to meet, work, run events and develop new skills, whether a writer, filmmaker, artist, musician, bar stool philosopher, graphic designer, coder, gamer, illustrator or more.

While everything is getting set up, a series of fun, open-to-all events are taking place in the space.
