Within the Strand Arts Centre’s aims and objectives we seek to provide a diverse programme of community and arts programmes to meet the needs of the whole community, and advance education in the appreciation and practice of the arts including cinema, dance, drama, literature as well as performing, participatory and visual arts generally.
Our programme of classes is in the early stage of development, and currently we only offer classes for those aged 6-18.
Whilst we hope there is something here for you, we welcome your ideas/requests for additional classes and workshops.
