Calstock Arts is a small but vibrant organisation committed to offering a diverse range of arts events; conserving our historic building for use by the local and wider community, and developing a comprehensive arts education programme.
If you share our vision and would like to support our work, why not become a Friend of Calstock Arts?
For just £15 per year (or £12 by standing order) you will receive a £1.00 discount on tickets of £6.00 and over. Please note the discount applies to Friends only and is not for tickets bought on behalf of others. You will also receive a twice yearly newsletter and invitations to social events, plus the opportunity to make new friends and play an active role in the continuation and development of Calstock Arts.
Calstock Arts puts on over 60 events each year. It also has a busy schedule of hiring out the building for meetings, weddings and classes. On top of that this large listed building requires a great deal of care and maintenance.
Calstock Arts is a volunteer organisation and its success depends largely on the time, skills and energy of its team of volunteers.
Even if you can spare only an hour a week or can help on an ad hoc basis, please do come and talk to us. We have a large range of tasks that need to be undertaken including customer facing at the Box Office or bar, back office admin, publicity and maintenance, as well as many more. If you would like to learn more about being a volunteer, please get in touch.
Defibrillator at the Old Chapel
From 16th October 2022 a defibrillator is available on the wall outside the Old Chapel. There are two others in the village; at the Village Hall and at Calstock Primary School. See here for more details.
It has been registered with ‘The Circuit’ who keep a national database of defibrillators and pass the information onto the local ambulance services, including the code to the cabinet.
London Hearts who supplied the defibrillator have shared a training video with us. Click here to watch.
Grassroots Jazz Fundraising Campaign
There is currently a campaign running, led by Nigel Price, jazz guitarist, to help struggling grassroots jazz clubs that didn’t qualify for funding in the post pandemic Culture Recovery Fund.
Please see his message below.
It’s a desperate time for UK jazz and we have already seen closures, sometimes of clubs that have been in existence for decades. If you would like support this cause then please visit https://www.grassrootsjazz.com where there are a number of fundraising initiatives, including a raffle, a ‘gofundme’ page, a direct PayPal donations link – with an option to opt for ‘gift aid’. The site will also keep you informed of live fundraising events and a list of clubs that have received grants. Your help would be appreciated enormously.
