Tandridge Trust has an established Arts and Culture department which over the past 11yrs has become recognised for providing excellent and inspiring arts opportunities for the local community and across the region. We work across all art forms, including dance, drama, craft, music, fine art, literature and other cultural areas such as heritage and countryside. All our activities are run by carefully selected arts professionals, who are DBS checked and offer a wealth of experience to participants.
This year we have introduced a series of one off workshops for adults, children and families. These will run on selected weekends throughout the year and include Clay Modelling, Painting, Drawing , Pottery and Printing, amongst other things.
