About Us

The Village Arts Centre is a not-for-profit facility run by a handful of dedicated volunteers.

Established in 1995, the centre has continued to host an average of one show per week embracing the very best of professional and amateur talent.

Artistes from all over the globe have expressed both praise and amazement at the wonderful facility that this former church building is providing. 

In fact, so good are the acoustics here that a number of musicians and groups have used the centre as a recording facility.

Our mission here is to provide the area with quality live entertainment as good as any found in the larger towns and cities.
