What do we do?

Vital Art is set up for the community of Writhlington School and all other schools in the Midsommer Norton Schools Partnership to access high quality performance art from people who perform on the international stage.

We have done this 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 this with a programme of classical music, because there is nothing like the spine-tingle of live musical performance.

Our concerts will take place in the spacious Dragonfly Theatre at Writhlington or in the beautiful atrium, often using Writhlington School’s fabulous Shigeru Kawai Grand Piano. To encourage as many of our community as possible we are giving all concerts this academic year for free. Everyone who is or was a student at the school, anyone who works in the school in whatever capacity, their extended families (including step-families), plus residents of Radstock and the surrounding area, all are welcome. We also welcome the students of schools in our Trust,, the Midsommer Norton Schools Partnership, with their friends and families.

The only thing we ask is that you book, so that we know how many people ae coming and can seat you all safely with respect to COVID regulations. To book, follow this link:
