John Peel Centre

The John Peel Centre for Creative Arts is an ambitious project to provide a lasting tribute to the life and career of the much-loved broadcaster and create a high quality, community-owned, Arts Centre in the heart of Suffolk. The team behind the project set out to bring an unused and decaying historic building back into use and create an inspirational environment to foster the creative energy of local people and enable wider enjoyment of the arts.

We want to help people to access and participate in cultural activities and events. Our goal is to see more members of the community able to participate in and enjoy the benefits of pursuing their own artistic endeavours and supporting the efforts of others.

As well as providing somewhere for the community to come together the team at the centre has, and will continue to bring high-quality acts and performances to the area to inspire people and show what can be achieved.
