Whether you’re a professional Carnival artist looking to develop your practice at our Northern Carnival Centre of 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 of 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.
