Tetbury Goods Shed Arts Centre
Tetbury Goods Shed Arts Centre is run by Tetbury Rail Lands Regenerations Trust (TRLRT), it’s a part volunteer-run venue converted from a former Great Western Railway building in 2016-17 by Tetbury Town Council.
Ultimately TRLRT vision is for the Shed to become a regional centre of excellence for the arts while at the same time fulfilling the local need for arts and entertainment
At the heart of the Goods Sheds vision is the ambition to encourage and capitalise on local talent in all areas of expression, whilst also showcasing dramatic performances by visiting artists. Musical performances cover the full spectrum, including dance events.
Then, next year, the Goods Shed Cinema, with a programme of films aimed at all age groups, will provide the town with a new source of regular entertainment.

A Bit of History – The redevelopment of the Goods Shed to an Arts Centre
Tetbury Town Council acquired 3.5 acres of Tetbury’s former railway land in 1997. At the time the Tetbury Rail Lands Regeneration Trust (TRLRT) was set up to raise funding and to support the development of the site. Over the intervening years, the former marshalling yard became a free long stay car park, the old stock market was converted into a Millennium Green and three miles of the former track bed became a linear Town to Country Park.
Tetbury Town Council working in conjunction with board members and friends of TRLRT, came up with a new, simplified and affordable plan to convert the Goods Shed into an Arts Centre.
More information regarding the regeneration of the Goods Shed can be found under the Tetbury Goods Shed Arts Centres website:https://shed-arts.co.uk.
