The Rossendale Cultural Arts Network (CAN) is a newly formed group of like-minded groups and individuals who appreciate the wealth of visual and performing arts talent that exists within the Rossendale Valley. The main objective of Rossendale CAN is to identify, develop, showcase and promote all of the amazing arts groups that exist within the Valley.

Rossendale CAN is a constituted group, Chaired by Barry Hyde, Secretary Pete Sweetmore and Treasurer Romy Vear. The network currently has representatives from The Dansworks Academy, The Boo Theatre, The Whitaker Museum, The Bacup Royal Court Theatre, The Rossendale Players, The APNA Community Gallery and other members of the community, all committed to highlighting, promoting and developing the Valley’s talent.

Rossendale CAN welcomes all visual and performing arts groups within the Valley and acknowledges that there are still groups out there that have yet to be identified, and is looking to these groups to broaden the network’s scope. These include music, singing, comedy, brass bands, other dance and theatre groups, of which we have many excellent examples in the Valley.

    Hello, how do I get details of Water band listed on this site? I clicked on the ‘brass bands’ section and only 2nd Rossendale Scouts is listed, alongside non-band groups such as Stubbylee Greenhouses and Horse & Bamboo. I’ve previously submitted details about the band in response to a questionnaire from the council, but nothing about our band or the many otehr bands in The Valley is shown on the site. Thanks.

      Hi Tim,
      Can you please send the details of the band to me at my email address and I will ensure that they will go on the Rossendale CAN members list along with a link to the water band web site. Barry Hyde
