Have you been to St Anne’s Chapel yet? Sitting in a green, pedestrianized oasis of Paternoster Row in the very heart of Barnstaple this historic, Gothic building in miniature, is now a new Arts and Community centre for the town.
Come in, take a seat and let the centuries fall away; this is a place to reflect, be inspired and create. Recently Ed Crumpton, resident artist during the buildings renovation, presented his finished etching to the Mayor, Cllr Lesley Brown (picture attached).
The picture will hang above the fireplace in the main chamber. Ed’s residency was the start of an exciting artistic events programme at the centre. Just some of the many activities happening at St Anne's:
Many more events and activities are in the pipeline, all can be viewed on the Town Council website or stay up to date by the second by following St Annes on Twitter. If you have an idea for an event or would like to hire the space , which has a capacity of 60, please get in touch with the Manager, Dion Sears. They are always looking for new volunteers to get involved with projects either heritage or arts; it’s a friendly and active team to join.
