Events

UWALS prides itself on making the arts accessible to the people who live in the rural villages of Upper Wharfedale.

We hold many entertaining talks, workshops, and performances every year covering a wide variety of subjects related to the arts and literature. You can learn new skills in our "expert led" workshops and attend performances by speakers and musicians who normally only appear in the bigger venues of our towns and cities. As a not for profit organisation, we price our tickets as competitively as possible and UWALS members get a priority booking service and reduced ticket prices.

We are fortunate to have access to many village halls in Upper Wharfedale and by supporting the work of the local village hall committees by organising events and performances such as these, we can ensure that these buildings, so vital to rural communities, have a sustainable future.
