Creativity and engaging with the arts can have an enormous positive impact on our health and well-being. Farnham Maltings is actively and keenly fulfilling its role within the town to strengthen our communities through a wide range of arts projects, making this a happier and safer place to live, for all people of all ages.

 

At Farnham Maltings, the Arts & Health programme is always evolving and includes the following:

My Shout is a new project that aims to mischievously celebrate ageing by creating four new pieces of art: dance, theatre, sculpture and film all made and presented by people from Farnham.

Meet Me at the Maltings is a group for anyone who wants to make new friends and try out a different craft or performing arts activity each week.

Singing for the Mind is an hour of singing every Monday designed especially for people living with dementia and their friends & family. We also have a wider dementia friendly programme with regular Dementia Friends workshops, dementia friendly segments incorporated into our main programme and we helped to found the Farnham Dementia Action Alliance.

Refreshers: A Festival of Retirement is an annual fair which brings together organisations and charities to present new ideas for places to acquire a new skill, embrace a different hobby or volunteer your time.
