Located in the Somerset countryside, the foundation’s performance space hosts a variety of events. Enhanced with specially commissioned artwork both inside and out, the building has its foundations in a creative heart and soul. Inside, beautiful architectural panels designed by Martin Dolan bear the image of St Cecelia, the patron saint of music and outside an imposing piece of sculpture by local artist Kate Semple draws the eye to the grounds and river beyond.
“I hope Cooper Hall will create a haven – a peaceful and bright space where the sights, sounds and smells of nature in the beautiful surrounding landscape can inspire, recuperate and refresh. Artistic work and the creative process thrive in an environment where there is space, safety and peace to experiment, discover, take risks, make mistakes, play with new ideas – without harsh judgment.”
Director, The Cooper Hall Foundation
