SPAN is a vibrant community arts charity based in Narberth, with a 30 year history of bringing the arts to rural Pembrokeshire.
SPAN is driven by the core belief that the arts have the power to improve people’s lives and acts as an agent for Arts as Social Change in West Wales.
We are ambitious for the arts in Pembrokeshire to inspire & connect rural people, places and communities creatively.
SPAN is committed to ensuring that all of our activities are inclusive, relevant and accessible to everyone.
A high quality and diverse programme of music, theatre, voice, dance and carnival events held at variety of venues and settings across Pembrokeshire.

Recent highlights include:
We provide opportunities for a wide range of people to gain skills, experience and take part in the community. This can be a vital lifeline for many isolated and/or vulnerable individuals living in rural areas.
“Accessibility and inclusion are buzz-words which are very rarely implemented. I was welcomed, there was no criticism and it was a great example of how teaching could be.” Lin Hill, Volunteer at Asylum Seekers Project.
“Span Arts is incredibly approachable and inclusive and have taught me a lot about working as part of a team, and how to support others and prioritise”
SPAN Arts are actively and publicly anti-racist, anti-ableist, anti-homophobic, and anti-transphobic.
This unmovable core principle informs whom we partner with, whom we approach for support, whom we employ, how we work, and whom we work with.
We will use the arts, our programme, and our position, to call out inequality and challenge bias across the county.
