About Wellington Arts Association

Wellington Arts Association

Formed in the 1960’s, the Wellington Arts Association (WAA) brings together all groups interested in the Arts in the Wellington area under one roof and promotes their activities.

It is the home of The Wellington Pantomime Group, The Wellington Operatic Society, The Civic Players, Genesis Youth Theatre Group, Spectrum Arts And Crafts, Wellington Acoustic Club and our own in house bar – The Critics Club.

The Wellington (Somerset) & District Arts Association is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee.

The management committee is made up of a chairman, vice chairman, treasurer, secretary, membership secretary, events officer, facilities manager, health and safety manager, publicity manager, a member of each of the constituent groups as well as up to 4 other committee members.

Why not join the WAA?

By becoming a member of the association, you automatically become a member of all of our constituent groups, allowing you to attend any of our groups and join in with their activities. Membership also allows you to advance book WAA productions. We do require anyone who wishes to perform in any of our productions to become a member of the Association.

As a member, you will be able to enjoy membership of The Critics Club, the WAA’s members’ bar – a friendly meeting place where members can enjoy a drink and a chat.

On top of the productions and events organised by the constituent groups, the Arts Association also organises, hosts or supports a variety of events as part of its year round Arts programme.
