Creative Communities Sessions for Over 55s


Fun, friendly and welcoming these sessions are a great way to have some new conversations and meet some new people.

Sessions explore and celebrate the seasons and each workshop offers the chance to meet professional performers and to try something completely new. No experience is needed and you can join in as much or as little as you like.

Feedback from previous attendees includes:

“I loved the friendly and inclusive atmosphere”


“A great community activity and helpful support”


“Confirmed that my move shortly to Shepton is a good idea!”


“It really helped with my well being. I'm going through cancer treatments at the moment and these sessions really lifted me.”

This session runs from 10:30 - 12:30pm with participants welcome to stay after for tea, coffee and chat. No experience is needed.

Made possible through support from Shepton Mallet Town Council and Somerset Community Foundation these sessions are aimed

at over 55s. Sessions are free with £3 optional donation towards materials.


13th July - summer celebration


We really want to ensure everyone can access these sessions and that we reach more isolated individuals – we know mobility can be a big challenge to this, therefore starting this month we will be running a collection service by Mendip Community Transport available to those in the Shepton area for our June and July sessions (15th June, 13th July) and we are hoping to continue this on a monthly basis. Mendip Community Transport will collect attendees between 10 – 10:20am and returning between 12:40 – 1pm. For those who would require some assistance during the sessions, carers are encouraged to attend too. The suggested donation for transport is £3.

Upcoming sessions are the third Thursday of each month!
