About AACV

Active Arts Castle Vale is a registered charity (reg. no. 1130759), run by committed residents and professionals, dedicated to providing quality arts experiences and opportunities for the local community, and wider North-East Birmingham. We run the Erdington Arts Forum (aka CAFE Arts), Sutton Arts Forum and have our own Secret Art Studio Space based in Central Square (Erdington High Street).
