About us

St Mary’s Arts represents arts activities at St Mary’s Ware.

St Mary’s is a Grade 1 listed building going back to the thirteenth century. It’s also a great performance and exhibition space. For many years the church has hosted arts events such as lunchtime concerts and evening shows, visual events, children’s work, and talks on many subjects.

St Mary’s Arts is here to pull together the whole range of activities, as well as exploring new ones. Activities will include music both classical and popular, visual arts and semi-staged events such as theatre, opera, dance and poetry. We welcome the arts of all cultures. We aim to fully utilise our church’s excellent facilities. Building on our rich tradition, we want to make St Mary’s a prominent arts venue, known in and beyond the parish.
