Congleton Creative LogoCongleton Creative represents Arts and Culture in Congleton and the surrounding areas and is headed by the Electric Picture House Cooperative, Congleton’s Arts Centre.


Get involved with the group Congleton Creative on Facebook.

We are a non-profit making artist led co-operative with 12 studio members creating a diverse range of work including painting, printmaking, glass, street art, sculpture, ceramics, jewellery and fashion textile design. We are committed to providing affordable studio space in an inspiring and supportive environment.

It is our aim to encourage participation in the arts in the local and wider community by providing workshop and gallery space and by organising exhibitions, art workshops, theatre performances, music, film, poetry, dance and community projects.

The building was taken on in July 2011 and considerable work, on a very limited budget, was undertaken to make the space usable. The building was originally a textile mill and was then converted into Congleton’s first Electric Picture Theatre in 1911. It has since been an ambulance station, dance hall, bicycle shop, a garage and most recently a cannabis factory.
