Our Vision

... to transform the historic Church of St Mary, Devizes, into a new vibrant building


Despite not being a fully-fledged arts venue yet, we have had massive support form the community and many events have taken place in this wonderul space. TITCO have been regular performers, we've had a clothes swap, book sales, carol services and many more. We look forward to many, many more in the coming years.

Open Morning ♦ Weds 3rd August


Wednesday 3rd August 10am-1pm

St Mary’s is opening its historic doors to the public for an Open Morning. The Church was originally built in the Norman era and over the many years, it has woven itself into the history of Devizes. Now St Mary’s looks to the future and hopes to become an art, education, and community centre.

As someone who has not only grown up in Devizes but also studied the arts, a place for other creative members of Devizes to thrive is crucial for future generations. We want to keep its deep history well rooted in its future project but allow it to grow and expand for future generations.

With this open day, you can show your support and learn more about our passionate project. Why not visit our exceptional building, find out about our exciting future project, and help your community?

Hope to see you there.

About Bowes WineBowes Logo 800x800

Bowes Wine has been run by Caspar and Victoria Bowes since 2002. Their core business is managing – and growing – collections of fine wine for a private client-base.

Much of the wine they sell is for future drinking, but investment is also a consideration for some clients. At the same time, Bowes Wine has been on a mission to encourage its clients to enjoy a more eclectic vinous lifestyle through a range of everyday drinking wines which offer something a little bit different, be it an unusual grape variety or less familiar region of origin.

There are more countries exploiting more grape varieties than ever before, producing an increasingly delightful range of styles. Caspar and Victoria believe we owe it to ourselves to explore this colourful melting pot.

My Place | Shining Lights on Kids in Care

My Place illustration - a interior with table, skateboard, bike

Sunday 26 June at 7.30 pm [doors 7pm]

£10 / Concession £8 [U16 & unwaged]


A Play by Riding Lights Theatre Company

This professional theatre company is coming to St. Mary later this month as it performs a play that shines a light on the realities facing children in the care system in Britain today.

My Place is a powerful and moving evening of theatre and conversation, telling the interwoven stories of children – an individual, a sibling group and a refugee – as they journey through the care system.

What's the story of My Place?

Both entertaining and thought-provoking, My Place follows the stories of four children in care, an individual child, a pair of siblings and an unaccompanied child refugee. They have different backgrounds and journeys, brought to life through a range of colourful story-telling techniques, including song and spoken word. Each story highlights the need for all vulnerable children to have a safe, stable and loving home where they can thrive.

Who is the event for?

Everyone! Any individual who cares about children, has a passion for justice and compassion for our society’s most vulnerable would be inspired by this event. We hope that many people will gain a better understanding of the experience of young refugees and children in care. The play is suitable for teenagers and adults but not recommended for younger children.

As part of its eight week nationwide tour and the evening will combine a performance of My Place with an opportunity to hear about the national fostering and adoption charity Home for Good and how each of us can play our part in transforming the lives of vulnerable children and young people.

Home for Good is a charity that exists to find a home for every child who needs one. We hope to inspire and equip people to open their homes to children and teenagers through fostering, adoption and supported lodgings. We resource churches to be a welcoming and supportive community for families who care for vulnerable children and advocate on their behalf at all levels of government.
