ACT is a project to build a new performance and arts venue in Thornbury.
It has been set up as an independent (not for profit) organisation solely with the purpose of developing and building a new 'state of the art' performance venue in Thornbury.
It will serve the town and local area, bridging the arts facilities vacuum between Bristol, Cheltenham and Bath.
