About Us

Gravesham Arts Council was founded in 1968, and is an umbrella organisation for all types of art and creativity in the Borough of Gravesham.

We now like to call ourselves Gravesham Arts. Gravesham Arts is run by a happy band of volunteers, who are responsible for the day to day running of St. Andrews Arts Centre, a grade II listed building set on the historic riverside of Gravesend.

St. Andrews Arts Centre is also available for hire. For full details click the “Venue Booking” button below, or use the menu above.

Gravesham Arts has a programme of events throughout the year including monthly art shows, open days, art competitions, events, concerts and workshops.

To view events coming soon, please click the “Upcoming Events” button below or use the menu above.

Membership of Gravesham Arts is open to individuals or groups and you don’t need to live in the Borough to join. So if you like what we are doing why not join Gravesham Arts – we will keep you informed of creative news, activities and events in the Borough.
