What do we do?

Vital Art is a Club for the students of Writhlington School to access the highest quality performance art from people performing on the international stage. It has been set up so that young people can experience the thrill of high quality live performances along with their friends and families, to understand what quality looks like and to learn to expect it. We are introducing our club with a programme of classical music, because there is nothing like the spine-tingle of live musical performance.

We are starting our club at Writhlington School and have included Peasedown St John Primary School, but we are hoping to expand to other schools in the area in time. In the meantime, those not at Writhlington and Peasedown Schools can join in, but for now they will have to pay full price for their tickets - which is still incredible value at £12. Stay local and park for free.

Our concerts will take place in the spacious Dragonfly Theatre at Writhlington or in the beautiful atrium, often using our fabulous Grotian-Steinweg grand piano.

What is the deal?

It costs just £15 to become a member for the academic year (up to August 2020). Then you can come to every Vital Art concert, featuring music performances by internationally acclaimed professional musicians, for just £1, and you can bring you mum, dad, brothers, sisters and grandparents for just £1 each too (step-families included). What else can you do for £1?

How do we join?

If you are part of the Writhlington School Community, you can join by paying £15 for the year’s membership through ParentPay. This means if you are a pupil at Writhlington or The Mendip Studio School, or if you work there under any capacity, teacher, admin staff or maintenance, you can join.

Once you are a member, you can buy as many tickets as you like for yourself and your family for £1 each, either through ParentPay or at the concert itself at the door.

If you are not eligible for membership, you can buy tickets on the door for a remarkable £12 each.

Vital Art is a club supported by Writhlington School and the Midsomer Norton Schools Partnership. We will be registering as a charitable organisation soon.
