So, our new autumn programme has landed and is jammed with over 90 wonderful gigs, concerts, markets, exhibitions, workshops and so much more. And it's introduced by none other than Poet and Comedian Ian McMillan! As a small arts centre working hard help folks enjoy and get involved in the arts, Ian’s heartening words and sentiment is hugely appreciated…. And not just because he obviously loved the cake!
Have a read of Ian's thoughts about The Witham and come and check out the next season's worth of events next week.
Everyone is creative and here at The Witham, we believe it's a fundamental human right to experience, participate in, and be excited by great art and culture. And we're working hard to offer you just that with our latest exciting season packed with theatre, films, visual art exhibitions, workshops, music and comedy.
Our mission is to be a platform for best artistic and cultural experiences, champions of participation in the arts for all, whilst creating a community that builds relationships and nurtures progressive, dynamic projects to excite, inspire & encourage artistic exploration.
