Welcome to Cheddar Arts

Cheddar Arts @ Kings Theatre is a community arts organisation based in the Cheddar Valley. It is centred on The Kings of Wessex Academy's state-of-the-art studio theatre and is an important collaboration between the school and the village community. Cheddar has always had a tradition of amateur-based plays, pantomimes and school productions, and has often played host to touring companies and orchestras. Cheddar Arts aims to build on this, and it's hoped that the theatre will become the hub of village theatrical life.

Cheddar Arts provides top quality professional entertainment and films for the local community. The theatre has seating for an audience of 240 and is fully equipped to professional standards with a new screen for the showing of films, and seats raised for perfect viewing. Box office facilities are provided by Kings Fitness & Leisure, and each performance is hosted by volunteer 'Friends of Cheddar Arts' along with staff at the Kings of Wessex Academy and Kings Fitness & Leisure.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
