Chapel Arts was formed in 2014 with the aim of promoting the range of Arts in Chapel-en-le-Frith and the surrounding area. We started with a pop-up shop showcasing local talent. Currently we put on local events covering art and crafts, performance, literature and spoken word that are open to all. We became a charity in 2018, allowing us to develop still further by accessing sponsorship and grants to provide community events at little or no cost.
At present we have a thriving literary group, some members of the group have become published authors. They also feature regularly in the Buxton Fringe Festival. We also run an annual Short Story Writing competition with prizes for different age groups. There are musical performances held at the Town Hall and Chapel Playhouse bringing new musical experiences to Chapel-en-le-Frith. Chapel Arts Film Group, which is held at Rems on the third Wednesday of the Month is very popular, showing up to date films on our doorstep (for the film programme email email@example.com). Special showing are also organised in collaboration with Chapel Players at The Playhouse.
We are currently searching for a volunteer with a interest in Arts and Crafts to join our committee and to develop this area within Chapel Arts. If you are interested, please contact Fred@chapelarts.org.uk to arrange an informal chat.
