We are really grateful to the organisations that have helped us make things happen since we started officially in 2014. Amongst them are:


The Holly Bush Pub and Arts Centre:

An independent arts venue that runs the smallest Comedy Festival in the world, possibly. Regular Thursday night comedy where stand-ups travel from afar to trial their material to undoubtably discerning Cradley Heathens. Hirings for music events, parties, and fundraisers at incredibly reasonable rates with Dave himself.


The Art Yard:

A community gallery with a rolling programme of open exhibitions showing a stunning range of artists’ work. Hire the gallery for solo exhibitions. Opportunities for artists of any creative activity. Slots for work experience. Art lessons available.


Walk Works CIC:

Walk Works is a Community Interest Company, we programme guided walks & outdoor events in around the Black Country. It was set up in May 2014 by Vicki Darby Smith, local historian and Fran Wilde, artist.

Haden Hill House Museum and Park


Friends of Haden Hill Estate

Sandwell’s most visited attraction is open seasonally for events and workshops which are organised, hand in glove by the museum staff and friends group.



Multistory is community arts organisation working across the Black Country, UK and Beyond. They work with artists and communities to tell stories.


Creative Black Country:

Creative Black Country exists to enable more people across the three local authority areas of Walsall, Sandwell and Wolverhampton to experience and be inspired by the arts. They work with local people to discover, explore and grow a range of exciting and meaningful programmes of arts activity in the Black Country.
