Our Friends from Creative Collectives

Calling fellow artistic associations, imaginative organisations, brilliant bands and other creative collectives. We want you to be a part of our story!

The Vale is home to and managed by Carnival arts organisation, Global Grooves. Founded by three percussion artists who all grew up in community music projects, our directors Leon, Holly, and Eraldo have pushed forward the growth of the organisation and scale of ambition alongside dozens of talented artists.

In The Vale, we’ve realised our dream – a perfectly-tailored environment where people can come together to celebrate, share, and develop skills, in whichever way appeals to them most.

You can join us on our journey alongside our other creative partners, and pitch in towards the development of our wider, shared community of like-minded individuals.

Or if you wanted to see how individual members can contribute, check out our Individual Friends offer here.

Your friendship won’t go unnoticed! Friendship is a two way thing, after all, which is why we’re offering our first 100 Friends some unmissable offers.


We also invite contributions of time and/or skills as part of our Friendly Volunteers scheme. Friendly Volunteers offer their skills and/or time towards one of our programmes and to thank them for their commitment, we offer a free ticket to a live event of their choosing. If this sounds like something you’d like to get involved with, please sign up using the registration form below.
