Whether you’re a professional Carnival artist looking to develop your practice at our Northern Carnival Centre for Excellence, or a passionate purveyor of the arts in your spare time, The Vale is the perfect place to call home.

Based in Mossley, in the foothills of the Peak District, The Vale is a former textile mill converted to a state-of-the-art venue for all kinds of artistic, creative and Carnival happenings.

In the community, The Vale is perhaps best known for our live performance venue where a whole host of different music, theatre, dance and cinema events take place. You can take a look at our current season here.

Our space is also used by our resident Carnival arts organisations, Global Grooves and Cabasa, to develop new Carnival productions, train new and emerging Carnival artists, and host masterclasses with global superstars and cultural leaders as part of our Arts Council England funded Northern Carnival Centre for Excellence.
