Have fun and raise money on the Tetbury Community Bike Ride

We're organising our second sponsored charity cycle ride for everyone along quiet lanes round Tetbury on Sunday 11th June 2017.

There will be two routes - six and 22 miles - and money raised by the ride will be split between the Dolphins’ Hall refurbishment, the Goods Shed Project, Tetbury Cycle Path and Jole Rider (based in ‘The Bike Shed’ on Hampton Industrial Estate).

Phase 1 completed

With the construction of the glass foyer, the Phase 1 building is now complete. The retractable seating has been installed and the brass plates fitted and engraved with the dedications requested by all the generous individuals, clubs and companies who helped pay for this magnificent addition to the Goods Shed.

TRLRT chairman Will Cook has fitted the frames for the secondary glazing and the glass should be installed by the contractor very soon. This will be followed by fitting of the main side window blinds while Barrie and Mary Doyle are making the blackout/acoustic curtaining for the north and south windows.

Then fitting out kitchen will be the only remaining major project. There are, however, still many other items that the Goods Shed needs, including a temporary café structure, sound and lighting equipment, tables and, of course, cinema equipment, so please continue to support us in our fundraising.

Seats go in on schedule

Fitters are on schedule to complete the installation of the tiered seats in the Shed by this Friday (24 March).

Designed and built by Audience Systems of Westbury, Wiltshire, the system can seat over 180 people. When not in use, it retracts, on powered rollers, to the south wall of the building.

It is due to be used for the first time on 3 April when Tetbury Community Choir perform their spring concert in the Shed in aid of the arts centre funding appeal.

Each seat will bear a plaque carrying a name nominated by its sponsor - over 150 local people and organisations helped fund the system by donating £250 per seat. Further funding came from several charitable trusts.

New website for Arts Centre

With the doors about to open on the Goods Shed Arts Centre's first full season, the time has come for the Shed to get a website of its own.

is the place for everything that's, well, Shed and Arts.

When you want to look up event listings, buy tickets online or enquire about booking the shed for your own show or private party, Shed-Arts.co.uk is the place to go.

Having charted the course of the project for several years already, this site will continue to report on the work of the Tetbury Rail Lands Regeneration Trust, including the long-term aim of opening a walk-ride-cycle trail to Kemble along the old railway line, and continuing to enhance the Shed and surrounding public open space.
