A new arts and entertainment venue in Tetbury

Tetbury Goods Shed is a part volunteer-run arts centre, converted in 2016 from a former Great Western Railway building.  Shed-Arts opened in the spring of 2017 having received generous support from Tetbury Town Council, the general public and regional donors.

The first season of events was varied but always informed by our vision for the Goods Shed to become a regional centre of artistic excellence in the Cotswolds.  Shed-Arts provides arts and entertainment in an iconic building that doubles as a community hub.  The most popular events have proven to be music covering the full spectrum of styles including jazz, classical, rock and choral events; the spoken word in the form of poetry, readings and informative talks and discussions;  craft workshops for adults and children; and rotating exhibitions of art.

Always at the heart of the Shed-Arts vision is an ambition to encourage and capitalise on local talent whilst also showcasing performances by artists, authors and speakers from further afield.

In the spring of 2018 the Goods Shed Cinema opened with weekly screenings of newly released films aimed at all age groups and tastes; and the popular Whistle Stop Café reopened providing drinks, light meals, delicious cakes and a friendly meeting place to chat and relax.

In 2019 we feel we are settling into our stride with a humming, lively venue.  But we always need more support as there remains work and development to be carried out and shows to put on at the Goods Shed. So please, pay us a visit as we would love to see you.


We will have much, much more information and news about the centre as we go along, but to get you started if you’re not familiar with the story of how it came into existence, do take a look at these infographics (click on the images to open PDFs).
