About Us

Our aim here at Span-Arts in Narberth, is to serve a wide range of people in Pembrokeshire with innovative and exciting live music and creative arts activities. We are a community arts group which came into being in 1998 following the decline of Taf & Cleddau Arts, (started in 1986) to continue the work of promoting arts events in Pembrokeshire on a voluntary basis. We focus mainly on performance activities and community celebrations.

Span-Arts provide a varied selection of community arts activities ranging from music, dance and arts performances to workshops in schools and training sessions. We work with children and young adults, some of whom are at risk; care homes and disabled people of all kinds on creative projects. Silk Painting with Jay Bossom at Big House Farm

Centred on the Queens Hall Narberth, Span-Arts has developed this work based on the experience of 21 years of programming arts events for adults and children. Our performance programme at the Queens Hall Narberth, ranges from Roots and world music through dance, theatre, storytelling and poetry performance. Our promotions are included in the Queens Hall brochure and always accompanied by the Span Arts logo

Past achievements include 10 children's festivals since 1987 and a varied programme attracting people from all areas of West Wales - and beyond! We have also been part of the Fishguard Jazz Festival, Tenby Blues Festival and for the last 9 years we have helped to enhance the Narberth Food Festival with cultural input. We also helped organised the re opening of Narberth Castle in 2005. Since then we have held music and outdoor theatre events at the castle in summer.

Our audiences come from many different sections of society and all age ranges - check out photos from some of our events on the archive page!

We have worked in partnership with other Pembrokeshire organisations to achieve mutual goals. These include: Global Connections, Narberth Food Festival, Pembs. Sky Festival, all local Schools, Narberth Jazz Pembroke Festival, Aberjazz Fishguard,Circus Malarkey, Common Ground, Pembrokshire Friends of the Earth and others.

Currently we have a monthly singing workshops with tutor Sarah Harman with quarterly visits from Judith Silver and many one off workshops as and when requested by members. African drumming sesssions and Talespinners drama group.

Half term and holiday workshops for children at our building in Narberth car park (See workshop page).
In February we have held a series of dance workshops under the title of
FEET ON THE STREET but were unable to attract funding to do this event in 2008.If you would like to sponsor a dance event, please call Declan on 01834 869323.
