Welcome to Rise

Built in the early 1800s, RISE – formerly known as The HUBnub Centre – is a lovingly restored former church located in the heart of Frome. Within the building there are two venue hire spaces catering for a wide variety of classes and events, a contemporary art gallery, a cafe and play space for families to enjoy and offices and work space. Click on the icons below to find out more about each of our spaces.

RISE – a place to relax, play, work, eat. A place to be together.

We have had to temporarily close our venue due to the COVID-19 current situation and following government guidelines. Our business is all about getting people together and while the advice is to stay apart we feel that we have no option but to close. This includes The Whittox Gallery, Rye Bakery Cafe and The OpenStorytellers

Please keep an eye on our social media for updates.

Stay safe, be calm and keep smiling. We hope to welcome you back through our doors very soon.

We are pleased to announce that our gallery will re-open on the 4th of April with our first collaborative show….more details coming soon.
