We provide the rooms, facilities and equipment that enables community groups, tutors and others to provide a wide range of arts courses and activities for everyone to learn, enjoy and grow.
As of the 17th March The Bridge is closed during the current Coronavirus crisis. There will be no courses, events, talks or any activities taking place. Please check back in the future to see when we will be reopening.
The Tutors and Volunteers at The Bridge want to help you by providing information and advice about things you can do at home whilst The Bridge is closed. Some of these are provided directly by us, some are links to other websites where you can access them. Please try out as many as you want. Whilst there are only a few to start with we will keep adding new items as they become available. So check back regularly.
