Welcome to UWALS, the Upper Wharfedale Arts and Literature Society

Upper Wharfedale is a large rural area with little access to the Arts & Literature facilities enjoyed by urban communities. The Upper Wharfedale Arts and Literature Society, UWALS, aims to improve access to art and literature within the Upper Wharfedale area by the provision and support of lectures, performances, talks, workshops and other associated activities.
