Your place to feed your passion and find inspiration.


For the past 12 years “Bannockburn Across the Bridge” (founded by Jan Hawkins and Heather McPherson) has operated in the community bringing you many fun and interesting 'arty' events.


Last year in May 2023 we created and incorporated the Bannockburn Arts Charitable Trust. 


We like to be known as Bannockburn Arts. 


The stated purpose of Bannockburn Arts is 

“To create and support vibrant and creative art activities that provide social and cultural benefits for the greater Bannockburn community.” 


Essentially Bannockburn Arts is an organiser of events that supports artistic creativity and social interaction that benefits the Bannockburn region and to do this we  rely upon our generous community and grants and sponsorship from funders in the Otago region.


What Bannockburn Arts is not

We are not an agent or agency for art or artists and hence do not presume to represent the views of artists. 


However we would like to hear your views and ideas to assist with our planning of upcoming events and projects. 

The structure of Bannockburn Arts 

3 trustees – who provide governance and administration of the Trust. Jan Hudson is the chair with Christine O’Donnell and Mark Christie fellow trustees. 


Our Committee members – which includes the 3 trustees above plus Gillian Watt and Andie Pearce. The committee is responsible for management of the events run by Bannockburn Arts.  WE are supported by some great Volunteers – essential members of the team who join as required to assist with running events. 


All the above roles are all provided on a voluntary basis. 

Come to Bannockburn

You're are sure to receive a great welcome. The Cromwell Basin is bursting with good food, good wine, talented artists and scenery to knock your socks off, and it is all yours to discover at Bannockburn Arts.


This spring, as usual our beautiful Bannockburn village will again host an Exhibition with other events to be advised. Put it in your diary.
