artsandculture

Arts and culture in the Waveney Valley are as vibrant as they are varied. Theatre and cinema lovers will delight at the wide choice of entertainment on offer at an array of stunning historic venues from a 16th century barn, regency assembly room and Victorian water mill.

Venues such as the Fisher Theatre in Bungay, New Cut in Halesworth, Diss Corn Hall and the vibrant Loddon Mill offer lively programmes of high quality entertainment, from comedy, theatre, film and music.

Throughout the Waveney Valley you will also find a wide selection of galleries providing a range of exhibitions. With its inspirational surroundings, it’s perhaps no wonder that the Waveney Valley is home to a surprising number of artists and crafts people. For local artists, try the The Upstairs Gallery in Beccles. Based in a former bank building and the hub of the Harleston and Waveney Art Trail is the Harleston Gallery. Try the Upper Waveney Sculpture Meadow, overlooking the beautiful flood meadows of the River Waveney, or Beyond the Image in the stunning Thornham Estate.

Bringing together arts organisations and practitioners, Waveney and Blyth Arts co-ordinate a variety of walks, exhibitions and events.
