Celebrating 10 Years Of Ropetackle

Join us in celebrating 10 years of Ropetackle throughout the month of April.

Ropetackle 10 Year Birthday Anniversary Celebration Shoreham Arts Culture

April 2017 marks an incredible 10 years since Ropetackle first opened, and what a decade it’s been!

We have come a long way since then, overcoming significant challenges and achieving great successes. Driven by our fantastic band of volunteers and wonderful community support (including our Friends), we are now a multi-award winning arts venue widely respected across Sussex and beyond.

To celebrate this significant milestone, we’ve programmed a special month of events throughout April featuring a selection of outstanding artists (scroll down for the full line-up). As well as this we’ve organised several free workshops and events covering a myriad of musical genres, plus we’re launching a fundraising campaign to help improve and upgrade some key equipment.

Read more about our 10th anniversary fundraising appeal.

Download our special anniversary brochure and you can meet the team behind Ropetackle and hear what some of our friends (including Peter James, Claire Martin, Midge Ure, and Richard Durrant) have to say about us!

So come and join us in celebrating our 10th anniversary, as we look forward to many more years of Ropetackle to come! We would not be here without you and we hope you enjoy our special month of celebration.
