Arts

Since 1990s Bergh Apton village has been active initiating, holding and producing Arts events.

1997 heralded not only the foundation of the Bergh Apton Community Arts Trust but also the first Bergh Apton Sculpture Trail – ‘Something Rich and Strange’.  

Between the large public events, numerous creative Workshops have been arranged including writing, print making, raku pottery, art-books.

From five more Sculpture Trails in 1999, 2002, 2005, 2008, 2011 proceeds were donated to many charitable endeavours totalling some £240,000.

BACAT’s retained resources have since provided launch platforms for a series of performed events. A Mystery Play – the Legend of the Rood(2014) – Midwinter Dreaming – A Play For Candlemas 2016 and Songline for Doggerland (2018).

In 2021 One for the Rook will be produced over ten days in September. Tickets, priced at £10 each, are now on sale from Eventbrite. For full details, please visit BACAT’s website here.
