Socially Distant Studio

We would love to encourage our local artists to display their work in our online community space.  Please email us with images and information, and we will publish these online.  You can see our online studio HERE

Hedgehog Survey

We are working with Shropshire Wildlife Trust to promote a local hedgehog survey. The idea is to see where hedgehogs are still active, and from that, map out a hedgehog garden network, determining which garden boundaries are hedgehog friendly, and which are not. Please visit our Hedgehog Survey Page, for more information, and to submit your survey

Take a picture of something WILD inspired, ideally using the Rea Brook Valley as inspiration. This year we are running our competition in conjunction with Rea Wonders - Friends of Rea Brook Valley LNR.  Open to all ages, with a chance to have your photo in a Rea Brook calendar! 


Upload the photo to your Instagram account and add the hashtag #myviewbellevue and tag @bellevueartsfestival  and @reabrookwonders.  We will pick a few of our favourites throughout the competition to showcase on our Instagram page

The competition runs from 17 May until 27 June. Photographs can only be submitted via Instagram and must include the hashtag #myviewbellevue. We reserve the right to use any of the submitted photographs in future advertising, social media or publicity
