Rook Lane Arts is a charitable trust dedicated to the arts and education in and around Frome.

From 2003-2013 the Trust managed the arts programme at Rook Lane Chapel, but the Trust and Chapel are now separate entities. The building and venue are now handled and managed by NVB Architects, who nonetheless continue to support the Trust generously in many practical ways.
