Get that Festival feeling at Fleet Arts during the trail

A hub of interactivity for all the family


Fleet Arts

Fleet Arts is a charity that works with a wide variety of groups and organisations to deliver creative projects & events all year round.

It has a small team of three dedicated, part-time workers and the new Manager, Ola Wilson, has been a keen contributor to the Arts Trail since its’ conception, so is pleased this year, to offer a variety of interactive, creative, accessible, fun & mindful activities at Fleet Arts over the Arts Trail weekend.

Fleet Arts are an accessible venue with toilets and parking for all and only a short walk from either the Market Square, No.28 or Strutts.

To entice people up the slight hill, there will be a delicious vegetarian two course lunch on offer, created by the fantastic Pulp Friction CIC with young adults with learning disabilities, using surplus food from Supermarkets (supplied by FareShare) for just £2.50 adults/£1 children.

So, why not plan to go to Fleet Arts for some well-earned refreshment and creative fun on your way around the trail!
