Welcome to Wooler Arts

ARTS FOR EVERYONE

Wooler Arts provides rewarding opportunities to take part in and enjoy music, the visual arts, the written and spoken word, and other art forms.

We aim to build on and develop the broad range of artistic endeavour and local heritage in the region, and to produce a programme of creative opportunities that seek to engage with a diverse and wider community.

SLIDE ACTION Trombone Quartet

Saturday 18 May, 7.30pm St Mary’s Church, Wooler

Four young trombonists make music with Year 6 children from Glendale Community Middle School in Wooler

Our second concert brings new pieces written specially for the Slide Action quartet, as well as arrangements of music from Debussy and Britten, to Poulenc and Piazzola. They will also include the results of an exciting  collaboration with local children.

Pupils from Middle School Year 6 have been developing musical ideas in workshops using Wooler Arts’ newly-created Junk Orchestra. This is a unique collection of metallic sounds made by striking different pieces of metal donated by Glendale Engineering. The children will bring their ideas together with Slide Action to create a new piece which they will play together in public for the first time in the concert on 18 May. A world premiere of Junk and Brass – a concert not to be missed!

Celebrating the beauty of our landscape

Established in 2020

Established in 2020, Wooler Arts has quickly shown itself to be an organisation that is of benefit to the market town of Wooler, Glendale and the wider region.

We put on exhibitions, art classes and workshops, classical and folk music concerts, recitals and workshops, community music events, workshops for children, workshops for traditional crafts and skills, and talks by visiting guests.

People are able to experience and participate in a range of different art forms and to explore new outlets for their personal creativity.

Community and landscape

Lives are enriched by engaging with the arts, whether it's being actively involved or by attending events. People enjoy a better sense of well-being through the arts and feel a greater sense of pride and citizenship of their community, and of the outstanding landscape in which we live. This is true for today and for future generations.
