Whether you’re a professional Carnival artist looking to develop your practice at our Northern Carnival Centre for Excellence, or a passionate purveyor of the arts in your spare time, The Vale is the perfect place to call home.

Based in Mossley, in the foothills of the Peak District, The Vale is a former textile mill converted to a state-of-the-art venue for all kinds of artistic, creative and Carnival happenings.

If it’s live performance you’re after, The Vale hosts a variety of music, theatre, dance, and cinema throughout the year. The space is also used by our resident Carnival arts organisations to develop new productions and artists as part of our Northern Carnival Centre for Excellence. Our mixed-use and specialist studios are also a hit with visual artists, musicians, dancers and theatre makers. All our spaces are available for hire and we would love to welcome you to our growing family of creatives that call The Vale home.

Every time I come here, I learn or see something new and leave feeling much better than when I arrived.  I can't wait until I visit again."

"Just come back from the puppet workshop with The Muppets' Christmas Carol. I don't know who enjoyed it more: me, or my three-and-a-half-year-old daughter. Really well organised and a lovely friendly atmosphere."
Dom
"Fabulous venue run by dedicated, friendly, lovely people who really want you to enjoy the time you spend there. A small, intimate and beautiful venue. We were so privileged to see the amazing Kyla Brox and so lucky to win one of her vinyl LPs in the raffle. It's been on the record deck a few times since last night. Thank you to Emily, Holly and Leon for your help and friendly communication. Looking out for more events at The Vale to attend. Thanks, guys."
